Who are you and what do you do?

Dino Paul. I split time between Creative Direction/Design and my Fine Art. I work in a variety of mediums and love to explore. My signature work and what I do most often is mixed media. I combine litho print techniques with chemical solvent washes, literally melting ink into paper from tight refined drawings. I then merge these multiple layers digitally into refined prints. Each piece is then embellished with pastels, acrylics and other mediums depending on the look I am trying to achieve.

How did you get your start?

As long as I can remember I have drawn, painted and been exposed to a variety of art disciplines. After spending years refining my melting ink technique I started showing my work to friends family and other artists I know. I got a lot of great feedback so I started sharing my work with the world.

“We Are All Just People”

What inspires you?

People and Hats. My appreciation for the human spirit has become a focal point of my work for the last few years. Who we are, what we do, our beliefs, interests and the diverse paths of life we take are all embodied in my work. The idea of straddling the line between individuality and conformity always crosses my mind. All types of other artists, photographers and writers also inspire me.

What do you like about AZ?

Fall, Winter, Spring. I like the uniqueness of the landscape. And food, great restaurants.

Where can we see you(r) work?

I don’t have any shows currently so Facebook, Instagram and my website.

“Master Hatters Meet”

What would you like to accomplish before you die?

I don’t think much about future accomplishments of even death. I have had a great opportunity to see so much, meet some amazing people and accomplish more than I was expected to. Of course we would all like a little more icing.

What is your mantra?

To be different, you must strive to be what no one else but you can be.
