statement | bio
The inspiration for my work is rooted in natural and organic shapes, abstract forms of both the seen and unseen around us and about us.
I rely on a classic color palette of bright poppy reds, shades of gray and silver, and textile-rich blacks to play with these abstract shapes and bring them to life. And more recently adding to this palette, bright blues and paper bag browns.
– Paul Antonio Szabo
