Carl Paoli

Art type:

Carl Paoli is an artist and a veteran Hollywood stuntman. Working for actors such as Patrick Dempsey and Jimmy Fallon, Paoli carries over his lifestyle into his artwork. His work carries a very street element while also combining a polished feeling showing obvious influence from the likes of Martin Mull, Viggo Mortensen, and Dennis Hopper. In all his works there is a clear sense of the theatrical; models are often “framed” by curtains of pigment that has been scraped down to the bone, while selectively leaving drips and dashes of disparate marks like a cinematic jump cut that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Paoli’s works have been showcased in museums and galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Florida and Chicago and have been sold world wide.
