Meet Paul Sierra

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paul Sierra.

From the MCA catalog “Art in Chicago 1945-1995”. Paul Sierra was born in Havana, Cuba in 1944. Growing up in Cuba, he wanted to be a filmmaker. After immigrating to the United States as a teenager however, painting became a more feasible ambition, and it led him to enroll at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His lushly colored canvases often depict symbolic landscapes, self-portraits or interiors. His themes include Greek Mythology, the exploration of man’s most discordant psychological states and the artist’s personal journey through life. Sierra has had more than sixty solo shows to his credit in the last twelve years. His works have been acquired as part of numerous significant public art collections, including, among others, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art and The Snite Museum of Art.

Please tell us about your art.
What my works are about. My paintings are about the human condition: loneliness, hope, death; my subjects are elemental : fire, air, earth, water. I’m more of a landscape painter than anything else, I try to invest the landscapes
and figures with emotional meaning.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
I think Facebook can be of help, look for artists you like, find them on Facebook and become a “friend”. Become a member of the Chicago Artist Coalition, go to their meetings, shows.
