Roberto Chojniak
Mosaic tile, signed by the artist.

Inspired by the music and influence of singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks.

After twenty years of creating mosaics in Los Angeles, artist Roberto Chojniak joined the 2012 GuitarTown on the Sunset Strip project with great enthusiasm. "I am so proud to be honored with the opportunity...to add my Stevie Nicks guitar to the legend of Les Paul, Gibson and the City of West Hollywood, known for its constant creativity," said Chojniak. "I chose Stevie Nicks because when I think of American female rock and roll singers, I think of Fleetwood Mac and ... Stevie Nicks. I remember her dynamic images as a singer, her body language, the flowing clothes, singing from her soul. A happy image, a smiling face--wearing red velvet."

Raised and educated in his early years in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Chojniak arrived in the United States in 1990 and began creating art pieces that were shown in various venues around Los Angeles. He combines in his paintings the same bold colorful expressions and musical themes often found in his mosaics. Chojniak likes to create mosaics that offer a photorealistic touch in a medium that is mostly comprised of glass tiles and rare precious metals. The resulting images stand out in crisp colors, strong lines and familiar themes. In addition to creating public art, Chojniak leads Mosaic Store Inc., a local, Los Angeles company specializing in installations of all glass tile pools, as well as mosaic bathrooms. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
