Paul Pulizzano from Creativity Explored has a seriousness of purpose that comes through in his artwork, whether working with acrylic–his preferred medium–charcoal, colored pencil, or papier-mâché. Most of his creative energy is focused on rendering human subjects from pop culture, history, and elsewhere. His sculptures are as intriguing as his paintings, and combine both facets of his practice into unique objects that carry his rough-hewn sincerity inside.
