ABOUT

Paul Jacob Bashour is an abstract painter based in Los Angeles and has exhibited his works in Paris, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York, attracting the attention of collectors, designers and art enthusiasts around the world.

About Paul Bashour

Paul began exploring painting, drawing and sculpture at an early age. He grew up in an artistic household, which moved from the midwest to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, home of illustrator Norman Rockwell, near the studio of sculptor Daniel Chester French, Chesterwood. Inspired by these creative personalities and while apprenticing with local artists, his creative talents continued to grow within the Berkshires’ artistic atmosphere.

In 1999, after visiting New York City, Paul became instantly hooked by the city’s architecture, culture, art and music scenes, and eventually moved there. During these years in New York, he started a painting company to support his art, he also taught himself how to plaster and tile as well. This work influenced his artistic technique and his evolution toward abstraction, and it contributed to his unique style of using tools and materials that were then at hand, like plaster, mortar, a trowel, drop cloth and gallons of acrylic paint.

The past few years Paul stepped away from the paint brush and moved to a method using a technique with a trowel and his hands. Resonating with past abstract expressionist painters, Paul glides his trowel through heaps of acrylic paint, adding and mixing in plaster, mortar, metal, scraps of leftover canvas and other materials and colors. Between these layers, his hands throw in layer upon layer of paint, at times letting the paint drip or flick from his fingers into the layers created. Paul paints with his emotions. He starts with having an idea of what he wants to create, but lets his emotions take over to control the way the paint and the other materials are applied.

“Music is an essential part of the process. At times I find my hand conducting an orchestra with paint and raw materials. When I catch myself getting lost in the work and finding a sense of balance, I stop, walk away and allow nature to take over. In time, the paint stretches and cracks as it dries, leaving a work of mountains and ridges giving the look of an eroded, vast landscape or a universe or where ever your mind lets you get lost in. The most exciting part of being an artist for me is when a collector tells me a story of becoming lost in one of my paintings. I build my own frames and stretch my own canvas because when I step up to paint, I find I have put so much effort into the process already that there is a deep respect and connection for the canvas as I begin to paint.”
