Biography Joseph Konopka
My younger brother, Joseph S. Konopka, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on October 6, 1932. Our family moved to Jersey City, NJ, in 1939, where an Uncle recognized his interest and abilities in painting. He supported him with an appreciation of his talents, and gave him gifts of the precious art supplies he needed.
His first "commission" was from his grammar school classmates, a painting of an Indian on a horse, overlooking a mountain scene. It became a gift of the 8th grade graduating class to the school.
Joseph graduated from Cooper Union Art School, New York, NY in June 1954. He also attended Columbia University, New York, NY for a year, where he studied under Woodman Thompson, a famous Broadway set designer.
