MR PAUL : MRPAULSTYLE
The backwoods of Pine Mountain, Georgia.
I took a random psychology class at the University of West Georgia. I learned about the theraputic benefits of creativity. Then, I applied what I learned to my life.
I don't paint. I color. I've been coloring, consciously, since 2007.
When I was a little kid, my mother was a fifth grade teacher. I used to help her construct and decorate her bulletin boards with different images, designs, and messages. The color pallete of the bulletin boards always included primary colors. That's why I use primary colors.
I recently, within the last couple of years, began including myself in my work. My previous work only depicted my female friends/models, and past lovers. I had to switch the game up.
MRPAULSTYLE. It's slick. Bold. Stimulating.
Acrylic + Ink
Yes, size matters for my work. I like to see my memories/ideas/thoughts "larger than life."
Easy. I simply document my own reality. The essence of whomever/whatever is in my immediate environment (mentally/physically) will end up being represented in my work. Ta da!
Who? Creatively, my father. My pops has always been a source of inspiration for me. He's a creative visionary known for restoring classic automobiles. He was the first person to show me how to turn an abstract idea into reality. What? Life, in general. I'm impressed by the things people say/do when they're interacting with me.
I'm currently working on a project called the "Museum of Modern Perspective (MOMP.CO)." The Museum of Modern Perspective was developed to serve the Atlanta community as a history museum, production studio, and event space.
"Progression is the only direction."
