PAOLO PEDINI - Artist

Creating public artwork is at the core of who I am. Every piece of art that I create is a rewarding experience and the life of the work continues to strengthen my sense of being an artist. I believe the potential of art to enrich the lives of everyone is endless and certainly anything is possible.

I pursue balance, harmonies, and graphic pops through combining various elements. Each piece starts spontaneously by creating background colors and patterns, later adding foreground figures that are a stark contrast to previous layers. More elements like spray painting stencil work are added to further the interactions between layers.

My newest series titled Fragments is a continuation of exploring painting techniques and image creation that I started in 2014. With each phase of new work, I have been pushing my artistic boundaries and attempting to create original images with the potential to expand personal visual narratives.
