Paul Pitsker

Biography from the Archives of askART

The following information was submitted in June of 2006 by the artist:

"I remember drawing obsessively from an early age, mostly pictures of birds and other wildlife.  During my formative years, my family lived in the middle of a remote, densely forested bird sanctuary in Massachusetts, which may account for my lifelong interest in the metaphoric potential of flight.  

In 1986, I moved to the Los Angeles area, after graduating with a mathematics degree from Pomona College in Claremont.  Inspired by a single drawing class taken at the end of my studies, I decided to drop all other plans and become an artist.  

My watercolors and oil paintings combine an ironic-Romantic theme of infinite yearning with a meticulous attention to the mundane details of the quotidian world."
