While on hiatus from his artwork during an extended writing period, JP Paul went three years without producing any work. In 2016, he created this series of 15 mixed media works on fabric and paper entitled, "Anonymous Memories: Nothing that a Lick of Paint Can't Obliterate."
The works emulate a personal journal or photo album that has been altered and updated over time due to life's changing circumstances. According to the artist, what could appear somber and melancholic is actually a positive reminder that despite the pitfalls we all face, anything can be overcome.

Artist / Writer
JP Paul is a mixed-media artist and writer on an unusual life path. Living and working in eight countries across three continents and an island tends to broaden one's horizons while making the world seem much smaller as you accumulate global references and acquaintances. Moving dozens of times affects priorities and determines what sticks or is cast aside.
During his travels, JP has also worked as an international journalist, a digital imaging specialist for a major photographic manufacturer, an art representantive and an IT professional for corporate and educational institutions. These diverse experiences have been influential in molding JP's unique perspectives, compelling viewpoints and a rich visual / verbal dialogue.
