Paul Melzian to demo at CAL Membership Meeting, March 19

  • 19 Mar 2013
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Encino Community Center
  Paul Melzian’s watercolors stop us in our tracks. His fascinating textures and liberating use of color convey the natural world while still communicating deep personal expression. All the more inspiring is how he creates his designs, how he connects to his subjects and the fact that he has only been painting for a few short years.
  Artists of all backgrounds and specialties will be empowered by his demonstration, which will celebrate the descriptive amazing freedom of the brush.
  Paul Melzian first became interested in art in high school. He served four years in the U.S. Army and was stationed for two of those years in Chinon, France. It was there that he developed a keen interest in photography and in taking his own photos as reference sources for his paintings. His art and photography have thus become integrated and interconnected, sharing the same values such as composition, lighting cropping and subject matter.
  Paul graduated from the Art Center School of Design as an advertising major. He served as creative director for a design firm in Santa Monica, California for over twenty years, working on numerous graphic art projects, exhibits, amusement parks model making, packaging, corporate I.D. and point of purchase material. He later freelanced as a graphic design artist for a number of years and worked as a design director for an additional decade. This has given Paul an innate sense of art’s ability to impact viewers with immediacy and visual interest.
