about the artist
born: 1992, Hayward, California
education: Creative Growth Art Center, 2010 - present
Since participating in the Youth program and transitioning into the Adult studio, Paul Fields’ expansive practice has developed into an elaborate, narrative tale. While here he selectively illustrates patterns of animals, drawing from cartoons and pets he so admires. His diligent repetitions are laid cleanly on the page, and often bleed beyond. Experimenting with scale is where Paul’s efforts are currently focused, among exploring the possibilities of animation, wood, and ceramics.
