About Paul Petersen

Paul Petersen is a digital artist who is helping to pioneer a technique he calls Spherical Art. He captures his images with a virtual camera, inside 3D polyhedral spheres. He uses their internal mathematical order to create unique artwork. He harnesses the intelligence these spheres possess to create color harmonies and visual rhythms that are evocative and expressive.

Paul Petersen studied painting at UCLA with Richard Diebenkorn and William Brice, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He did post graduate study at the Art Center College of Design.

He's had careers as an advertising art director, watercolorist, and medical illustrator. His technical proficiency in computer graphics has put him in a position to explore this new area of abstract geometric image creation.


Post Graduate study at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA
