Paul Spina

The work of Paul Spina is a visceral reflection of the socio-economic world in which he lived:  an urban working class neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, dealing with World War II and the revolutionary years that followed. Paul was one of the first artist “settlers” in Soho, New York in the 1960s. For a fuller statement, click on "Statement" above this paragraph.
