Work by Paul Paiement

Paul Paiement ’92 recently sat down with MN Original to discuss his artistic philosophy, the evolution of his work, and growing up in "Nordeast" Minneapolis.

Paiement knew he wanted to be a professional artist when he was in high school. After graduating from MCAD at the age of 25, he moved to Los Angeles to attend graduate school. He now teaches while maintaining a full-time studio practice.

His current work marries inorganic or man-made synthetic elements of culture with the organic elements of the natural world.
