PAUL JACOB BASHOUR

We Are All Art

We perceive ourselves through emotions
that visually capture our identity
We transfer those emotions into an art form
that ultimately becomes who we are

Daring to aim higher
Willing to tackle any obstacles ahead
Reaching beyond our skies
To make a voice unknown, known

Perhaps there is more
More than just creating oneself
Unaware what’s beyond our stars

And yet we still move forward
Into a future, a future of endless possibilities
And everything we create, we just leave behind
We are all art

-Paul Jacob Bashour

ABOUT

Paul Jacob Bashour is a visual artist based in Los Angeles and has exhibited his works in Los Angeles and Paris, recently attracting attention from collectors, designers and others. His work can be found in private collections in the United States and abroad. Paul has been an artist since an early age, and has developed a unique technique of abstract painting, having worked also in ceramics and sculpting. Without a brush or easel, he paints horizontally on saw horses. Using a trowel and his hands, he pours, throws and spreads in layer after layer, creating an actual sculpture on canvas. He uses mixed media including recycled strips of left-over canvas and acrylic paint, mixing the colors on the canvas.

As part of a multi-city painting tour beginning in 2016 entitled: “We Are All Art,” Paul plans to create and present a series of paintings in several cities: Paris, Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Berlin, London, Milan and New York. Paul completed the Paris segment of his tour with great success in the fall of 2016, placing several works with clients in Paris and New York. Passionate for painting and creating, Paul pours out his whole self onto the canvas. His Paris show was called in French: “Sentiments.” Also a filmmaker and photographer, Paul plans to produce a photobook of each city experience, and meet and film other artists to create and produce a documentary of artists’ interviews on the topic of art. Paul lives and works in Hollywood, where he has also built up many film industry credits, and opened the L.A. segment of “We Are All Art” in the winter of 2017 in Beverly Hills.
