This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Nicholas Krushenick was born in 1929 in New York City. Following World War II army service, he studied at the Art Students League from 1948-1950 and the Hofmann Art School in 1950-1951.

Krushenick went from Cubism to Abstract-Expressionism, dropping the use of oil paints around 1960 for acrylics, and arriving at a style emphasizing fluorescent colors and black outlines of hard-edged, geometric shapes. While Krushenick was a contemporary of the Pop artists, and his work has the look of their simplistic, mass-media forms, no recognizable objects are depicted.

Nicholas Krushenick's work is in the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; Dallas Museum of Fine Arts; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Hirshhorn Museum at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
