Meet the artist PaulKaplan: Incentivize

Incentivize by Paul Kaplan highlights his vivid, bold, and contemporary expressionistic style

Kaplan chooses to work primarily with acrylic, ink and spray paint. His style is best described as expressionistic and he explores a multitude of human and social emotions through his work. What some see as mere objects and faces, he sees colors and emotions. His mixed media work can be best described as bold, vivid, and contemporary.

Kaplan grew up influenced by the diversity of experiences and people of Southern California. Whether he spent time drawing, surfing, traveling, or panting each experience helped mold his personal narrative and own unique style of art. Kaplan furthered his education at the University of California at San Diego where he studied sociology, anthropology, and visual arts. During the pursuit of his Master of Arts, Kaplan was able to study under renowned professors including Eleanor Antin, Kim MacConnel, Faith Ringgold, Italo Scanga and Roman De Salvo. His education, training, and personal experience has helped him develop a style all of his own that infuses traditional methods with intense, vivid colors, and exaggeration in appearance with loose brushstrokes.
