About Paul Rousso

Raised in North Carolina and educated at the California College of the Arts, Paul Rousso shows his works at galleries and art fairs around the globe. With influences ranging from Dr. Seuss to Roy Lichtenstein, Rousso casts his pop art sensibilities on a 21st-century scale.

His signature concept, "Flat Depth", which he has been refining his entire professional career, to him is the logical progression of modern art - to render a flat object three-dimensional, or to collapse a three-dimensional object into two dimensions - and is a fusion of countless complex artistic methods, including painting, printing, sculpting, welding, chemistry, digital manipulation and digital printing. Through heat infusion on plexiglass, Rousso creates his captivating hyper-realistic, hyper-sized, pop-art inspired sculptures.
