Paul P featured in Canadian Art’s The Miami Connection.
Paul P. at Cooper Cole/NADA
Canadian painter Paul P. is no stranger to the international art scene; for years he has been based in Paris, influencing many with his visions of masculinity. “In 2006, Hedi Slimane, the menswear designer known for chucking attractively pasty, rail-thin male models down the runway, based the visuals of a Dior Homme advertising campaign on P.’s drawings of willowy young men,” wrote Bill Clarke in Canadian Art magazine a decade ago. Those drawings “in turn, were derived from images culled from 1970s gay-porn magazines.”
Not surprisingly, given his skill and vision, P.’s art is in the collection, now, of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Los Angles County Museum of Art, among others. And Cooper Cole is bringing some of his work, now, to Miami. Where will P.’s new canvas Untitled (after Perseus by Cellini) (seen above) end up? Would be great if it was another place the public could see it, but understandable if not.
Also on view at the Cooper Cole booth, and worth a look or four: works by Canadians Sara Cwynar, Tau Lewis, Jenine Marsh and Curtis Santiago.
