Bio:
Since his beginnings in 2010, Paulo discovered he needed an new outlet to purge the dark emotions that muddled up his inner being. Walking into the local arts and crafts store was the discovery of a lifetime, and the path to therapy he was looking for. Starting with pastels, he moved onto acrylics, then to oils, each time stretching the bounds of his imagination until they could go no more. Soon, with the advent of smartphones, Paulo added digital art and photography to his mode of creation, because of its ease of availability, especially when inspiration struck him at any given moment.

Much of his work stemmed not only from his inner turmoil, but also from life growing up in NYC. The sights, sounds, and smells affected Paulo's thought process, leading to an evolution of creative force. Paulo's style of choice has always favored abstract, for this called to him and was the best mode of expression. Now in his new home in Rockledge, (Also some time in Palm Bay and Melbourne), Paulo is discovering a new perspective in relation to his creative process, taking in the new sights and feel of the culture of Florida, hoping to transform once again.
