You might not be familiar with the name of Paul Kushkyan but chances are that you have been impacted by his art and even taken pictures of it. Every year, about 37 Million people see his work, pose in front of it and immortalize it in photographs. And that's in Las Vegas alone. When mega corporations around the world look to impress with style and craftsmanship Paul is their man. From mythical heroes towering over 5 star resorts to fantasy characters and environments for Disney Imagineering and their theme parks to seasonal art pieces for the city of Santa Monica - there is no doubt that Paul Kushkyan is a humble master sculptor with an unparalleled sensitivity when it comes to breathing life and soul into a sculpture. He was a principal sculptor for Scenery West, Lexington, Global Entertainment, Merritt Productions, Scenario Design, Tribal Scenery, Imagivations, Alger Co. Lusive Décor, Formatech, California Art Products, Architectural Details, Prop Masters, Sheila Trevino Studios, Sony Studios to name a few.
Having been able to make his passion his career and enriching American cities in the process has been a dream come true. There is, however, another dream he is driven to realize. His crowning achievement. The thirst to bestow the windy city of Chicago with a statue of president Obama. Paul will donate his talent and time, no commission will be charged. But just as most true art is a team effort; he will need your patronage to bring his vision to life. Remember: The artist's hands can break the spell and free the figure that is slumbering deep inside the stone block but he needs your collaboration to bring Obama's statue home where it belongs: Chicago.
