Frank Paul (1962), works with bizarre forms and faces painted in very strong colors, sometimes with a dark and dramatic expression. He uses humor and irony to explore everything between everyday life and the more complex questions in life. Paul works with both sculptures and sculptures hanging on the wall as paintings. The materials used in his work are wood, canvas, plaster and different foreign elements, which are converted into imaginative creatures and figures. A great inspiration for Paul’s art is everyday life and unthinkable situations along with dreamy scenarios and the confusion between humans and animals. Together with the carefully chosen titles the sculptures create a sense of irony and a quiet rejection to consumerism in the society. The color red is of great importance in Paul’s artworks as red for him stands for love, joy, blood, passion, danger and for a political mindset.
