Edward Marecak is known for cubist painting figure and floral still-life painting, teaching. He was a Denver art teacher whose exhibitions were regionalized and infrequent, but was distinctive with his very own artistic dialect. His kaleidoscopic narratives, keenly aware of the spiral nature of time were intended to inject a mythic presence into the seasons of life, investing venerable gods, and most particularly goddesses, with contemporary vestments and concerns; fresh bodies and outlooks; slyly and humorously raveling logic of folklore into concurrent event and celebrating, always, passions of sensual existence and privileges of observation.

Born near Cleveland, Ohio to parents whose household was saturated with the fables, customs and wisdoms of their Carpathian Mountain homeland, Marecak is remembered as a boy not only for his predilection to exceptional visual pursuits, but for verbal facility in storytelling. He studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art on full scholarship and at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan before and after his years of military service during WWII.
