Paul Cooley is a fine artist from Queens, NY currently living and working in NYC. Paul has strong graffiti roots but now works primarily in mixed media to create his works. After battling drug addiction, homelessness, and a seemingly endless struggle to fill a spiritual void; Paul has resorted to creating every day.

"There is no utopian life. There is no "perfect", and I think there is a certain beauty in accepting that things are flawed, and refusing to let it affect you. This is what I am about, and my work is the largest extension of that. Often times, darkness will come out during my process only to get covered up in layering. Kind of like the battle unfolding on my canvas. When i am lucky the good side will win."
