About Me

I'm a visual artist working predominantly in oil paint, with a side of sheet metal sculpture.

Paul Arsenault - Aritst

Artist Statement

Anchored firmly in painting, Paul’s work is strongly influenced by the narratives of daily life.

Paul's current project is a fusion of the traditional art form of oil painting with cutting-edge AI technology, exploring the intersection of human creativity and machine intelligence. Through collaboration with the community and the use of AI-generated images, he challenges the boundaries of traditional artmaking and creates a unique visual language that captures the essence of Ai imagery through the utilization of oil painting's vast and historic lexicon.

New Studio OTW!

If you haven't heard, I've left my studio of 20 years due to the rising costs of rent. I'll be building a space in my backyard so stay tuned. The process will be documented, mostly for comedic value.
