Paul Kroner is a visual artist and designer living in Cincinnati, Ohio. His art includes representative and non-representative works in oils, acrylics, bronze, and other media, including limited edition prints and animation.
Paul Kroner was born a maker.
This need to make led Paul into a career as a graphic designer, but his desire to make art was always alive in his heart. In his late 40s, no longer able to keep his artistic drive secondary in his life, his practice exploded.
Born the sixth child in a family of eight, Paul grew up in a tiny house where art was not only encouraged by his parents, it was his natural instinct.
Never one to be boxed into a single mode of execution or expression, Paul moves fluidity from one medium to another — from representational to abstract, and 2D to 3D — with a focus on intra and inter-personal relationships.
Paul's work has been shown in numerous galleries and solo and group shows in New England and the Midwest and, along with his paintings, are in private collections nationally.
“There is a vitality,
a life force, an energy,
a quickening that is translated
through you into action,
and because there is
only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.
And if you block it,
it will never exist through any
other medium and will be lost.”
— Martha Graham
