Paul Crimi - A Lifelong Affair with Art

 

"Life is a precious gift that I love and hold dear~ and my Art is the best way to express my appreciation for the joy, happiness and wonderful blessings in my life"

I am first a modern contemporary impressionistic artist - I enjoy abstraction, sculpture and assemblages as well. I have explored every avenue of art for my entire life. I am a member of the Boston Printmakers.

 

When was the first time you realized you were an artist?

When I was seven years old I started painting and my parents were amazed at my work.

Jazz and classical music

 

When feeling uninspired, how do you get inspired again?

I go to the movies and many times I just push myself to work right through it.

 

What do you do in your spare time besides create art?

I read- religious and inspirational material - meditation, prayer and the masters of art.

Have you sold many artworks?

I have been a successful artist since high school and have sold thousands of paintings globally.

 

How do you like to promote your art on the internet?

Facebook and Linkedin - I started Linkedin in December 2011 and now have 1,800 connections who serve as a wonderful network of artists and friends.

 

Influences

David Hockney because he is a multifaceted artist who went from realism to abstraction and expressionism. My favorites as a kid were Norman Rockwell and Salvador Dali, Matisse, Van Gogh, Pissaro, Maxfield Parrish, Gustav Klimt, Da Vinci, Jim Dine, Hopper, and Turner.

 

Can you recommend a contemporary artist to our readers?

Jim Dine - he is a pop artist and printmaker who did a series of bathrobes and judged the Boston Printmakers national juried show at the Danfort Museum in Framingham Mass.

 

Please tell us something interesting in your art career.

1963 - in high school I used so much paper and materials that I ended up owing the art department $1,500- the local newspaper ran an article about my work and the bill and advertised that I would sell my prints for a dollar and I sold 3,000 prints in two days and paid my bill.

 

Where do you see your art career in 10 years from now?

Only God Knows. He has a plan for everything and everyone.
