       Born on December 14th 1973 in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, he expressed his interest in art from an early age. During several trips to Quiberon, Brittany, he developed a love for seascapes and the 18th century period. After academic art studies he sought to perfect his oil painting technique through the traditional teachings of a master: celebrated classical painter Alberto Ycaza (1945-2002). Paul Damian has had several solo exhibits in the US and in Costa Rica and has also painted murals and large canvases for hotels and private individuals. He is currently established in Manhattan, NY. Videos of his work are available on More info at Contact the artist at:
