(B. 1969, USA)
Known for his abstract paintings and uncommon use of materials, Paul Kole shares his vision in private collections across the United States and Internationally yet has remained relatively quiet within the art community with most works acquired by word of mouth from collectors and corporate clients.
Deliberately choosing life experience after as his influential guide into his creative process, Paul Kole has worked in many fields with the intention of participating, learning and growing. He would then apply this knowledge to his creations. All phases of construction, planning, organization, interior design, business management, gallery preparator, exhibition design, retail, fashion display, food management, product design, packaging and more were mentally, emotionally and spiritually coalesced. These life experiences can be seen throughout his work in technique, materials, composition, size, perspective and inspiration. Although drawing and designing since childhhood, 1992 is when Paul discovered painting. His first painting , "North Carolina" was purchased before it was dry. Over the next few years, Paul created "The Art House", a quarterly Art Show in his home. This led to coffee shop shows, local group shows, salon shows, film festivals, commissions, corporate, restaurant and private acquisitions.
The most profound influence upon his creative approach and process arrived while performing as preparator for one of the largest privately owned galleries in the United States. With direct access to top artists, he was able to engage and share insights with other artists from around the world. These opportunities were vital to the expansion of his voice and vision.
With a seeming unlimited creative energy and intuitive perspective, patrons discover multiple manifestations of his artistic visions in many forms including furniture, sculpture, jewelry, style perspectives, utilitarian concepts and consumable products.
Paul Kole currently lives and works in Orange County and Joshua Tree, California.
