PAUL MORADO

Répartie in Art
July 7 – July 28, 2015
Reception: Thursday, July 9, 2015 6-8 PM

Paul Morado journeys into a world full of imagination and wonder in his paintings. His works reflect an environment of boundless color and whimsical behavior, showing us places and creatures that could be found in the illustrated books we used to read as children, but have long since forgotten. Looking at his paintings, viewers are confronted with their childhood fantasies and fears. Morado cites George Condo, Pablo Picasso, and even Dr. Seuss as influences in his art. In fact, these artists inspired Morado to purchase his very first canvas. When he paints, Morado enjoys listening to music, which helps him deeply explore “metaphors and misguided relationships.” 

Morado loves to use colors that pop and make the paintings bold and vivid. He employs space as a means to illustrate different emotions. At first glance, one would think that Morado’s rich colors depict only positive emotions. But much like the work of Dr. Seuss, there is an underlying realism, frankness, and darkness in even the brightest of paintings. Morado’s work “reflects self-worth and fears within,” acting as a mirror that shows both beauty and flaws.
