Role Call: Paul Paiero

Role call for jury duty!

We are thrilled to be working with Paul Paiero again in 2017. He’s been a staple of the Expose Yourself community since circa 2010 and, he’s just a super nice guy. Paul appreciates a little humour + humanity with his art, ya know? So do we.

For our 2017 exhibition, Paul joins us as a member of the jury (he’ll be taking bribes closer to January.) Paul’s a courageous, self-taught artist and general do-gooder residing in PowTown. He’s in charge of keeping shit real! His work is sometimes comical, sometimes tantalizing, sometimes political and always thought provoking.

We heart his art!

case and point 

In his own words, here’s why Expose Yourself is not just a silly-good time…

Expose yourself is Powell River’s very own diverse art experience that invites and promotes artists for OUR chance to provide  experiences that titillate and disrupt mainstream thinking. Without this (and similar… ?  are there any) exhibitions, we, the non-mainstream ‘types’ have few, if any, opportunities  to display our works. I myself NEED THIS to present my art, to spark my creativity, and to just plain enjoy.

AND SO… in closing, as FRANK BARON said… The creative person is more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.”
