Fred Krakowiak’s talent and passion are what make him an outstanding addition to any event. Guests at Rendez-Zoo, An Evening of Conservation and Cuisine, were captivated by this one of a kind experience as they watched Fred create a masterpiece on silk right before their eyes. His generosity towards our silent auction brought in much needed funds to help support our conservation efforts and we look forward to partnering with him again in the future.

“Fred painted during the dinner hour outside on the aviary lawn…a wonderful bull elephant that we were able to auction off at the end of the evening. It was exciting to watch him work and see the animal come to life on his canvas. With all of his sojourns to Africa you can feel the passion he has for the animals and it carries over into his art . His work is bold, memorable and makes you want to go on safari. If you ever have a chance to see Fred paint the majestic African animals that we share the planet with, don’t miss it!”

“Our Zoo Rendezvous guests enjoyed the engaging experience of observing Fred Krakowiak paint at our event. The star of the evening was our baby elephant, Zuri, and Fred painted a beautiful elephant on silk, to the delight of our patrons … and we were thrilled to work with him …”
