He has received numerous awards, including the Arkansas Arts Councils Lifetime Achievement Award.Dombek was born in Paris, Arkansas, the son of a coal miner. He became fascinated by art at the age of seventeen when he read about the work of Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline in Time magazine. Concerned that he couldnt earn an adequate living as an artist, he studied architecture but was later drawn back into art and earned a masters in painting. Throughout his career, he has practiced and taught architecture, while devoting his principal effort to painting, particularly in watercolor.All of Dombeks work, in one or another fashion, creates the illusion of reality by following a step-by-step process of construction, similar to the work of an architect or a builder.

Dombek has used this method, which he calls constructed realism, to explore a variety of subjects in a way that seems to bridge the usual distinctions between real and abstract. George Dombek: Paintings collects some of the artists most notable renderings of the themes he has pursued intensely for years: birds in trees, rocks, discarded cans and metal objects, enormous flowers seen in close-up, sticks bent in unusual ways, bicycles, and more.
