Paulo Metal Art and the BicycleXchange are creative approaches to EXCITE and INSPIRE our future generations
"The sustainable infrastructure of a healthy community begins with the understanding of how community involvement links the citizens to the Community and perpetuates the desire to improve their environment.”- Paul "Paulo" Slater, Executive Director BicycleXchange-Community Built Bikes.
I parallel my passion for clean, green living with a true love for the arts and modern sustainable developments. I aspire to cross-promote the beauty of sustainable transportation and volunteerism via modern art culture. A majority of my life I have spent working alongside artisans, craftsman, pioneers, and traditionalists. As a volunteer, I've inspired to uplift both urban and rural communities.
My brushed metal illustrations employ an impressionistic painting style onto a metallic medium to represent urban life in the natural world. The brushed metal holographic polish and burn melds the dichotomy of industrial alloy with delicate impressions of nature. i promote positive messages by contributing to the enrichment of our community. With a portion of proceeds from art sales, I assist non-profits with their promotional outreach programs, as well as, serve as beautification projects for "Art in Public Places."
Brushed metal art is still very young in art history and even fewer have seen such a magical light show. The following photos are attempting to capture the brilliant renditions of organic life on sterile metal.
Artwork sizes range from accent wall to commercial billboard.
Interior and Full Exterior contracts are available.
