*Paolo “Paul” Corvino was born September 20, 1930 in Bronx, NY. He was a professional boxer turned artist. Many of his paintings and sculptures can been seen in public spaces, including terminals at JFK and LaGuardia airports, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Museum of the City of New York. His works have been sold in fine galleries throughout the world including auctions at Sotheby’s and Christie’s. He is listed in Who’s Who of American Artist. He worked out of his gallery and studio in Larchmont, NY until his death on February 6, 2013.
The Paolo Studio was located north of NYC, in a gallery reminiscent of an old European studio where Impressionist artists in the 1800’s might easily have painted. The artist operated amid his own works, a true craftsman in more than four separate mediums, Oil on Canvas, Bronze Sculpture, Fresco and Watercolor among others. Different themes,he believes, require separate methods of expression. The artisan must follow the idea he wants to express and then identify the way in which to express it.
The artist is particularly prone to the appeal of the senses and of the immediate experience and observation. In fact, painting to him was an endless journey of research and experimentation. He never painted a picture with a view to simply producing a work of art. Instead, he continued to research and experiment, and in this constant inquiry logical developments emerged
