ABOUT paulo BOIDE
I am an american artist raised in Spain and currently living the Californian dream. My goal is to reach to the viewer and make them participate in the work, each providing different interpretations and bringing awareness of certain things, and move people’s thoughts elsewhere.
Merging technology and fine art, I digitally design 2-D compositions based on geometry and balance, and put them together in a solid support combining different layers to express movement and depth. These layers are then fixed to a rigid canvas, that once framed, make the artpiece whole. Most of my work is done using optical lenses with different levels of translucency in a range of colors, graphic patterns, textures and photographic images.
Having acomplished an Architecture Masters Degree in Europe, the artworks gravitate upon ideas of geometry, form and shadows evolving throughout the observer's position and perception. The bright and fully saturated color palettes to which I instinctively gravitate to, is heavily influenced by the Venezuelan arts and crafts which made a great impact on me through my ancestry.
Each and every artwork is limited in time or quantity. I am really focused on making each artwork speciaand collaborating with local craftsman and suppliers to support local business and the great ecosystem of the Coachella Valley.
