Laying a foundation studying architecture at California Polytechnic State University, Paul Gibson received a BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles and a full painting scholarship to the National Academy of Design in New York. Gibson has produced sculpture, drawings and paintings out of his San Francisco studio for 30 years and is an avid collector of more than 150 pieces of fine art himself. His work is part of the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., the Achenbach Collection in San Francisco, and the Seven Bridges Foundation in Connecticut, among many others.
Gibson’s realist paintings appreciate the everyday objects that surround us. His artworks have been exhibited nationwide, from the SF Fine Arts Fair and San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art to the Allan Stone Gallery in New York to Art Basel in Miami.
“Exploring simple everyday objects with spatial ambiguity and perceptual perspective inspires me to create these paintings.”
