Painter, teacher; Los Angeles, Calif. Bizinsky was a post-impressionist painter of city and landscapes.

From 1946-1951 he worked in Paris with fauvist Emile-Othon Friesz and exppressionist Yves Brayer. He returned to the U.S. in 1951 under a scholarship from the Huntington Hartford Foundation in Southern California, and settled in Los Angeles where he became active in the Westwood Art Association.
