Born in Arkansas, Paul Maxwell is a painter, sculptor, print maker, conceptual artist and creator of functional art forms. A short film entitled "Through a Veil of Knowledge - The Legacy of Paul Maxwell," will showcase the artist’s illustrious career. Maxwell will explain his views on “The Importance of Art in an Architectural Environment.” In addition, he plans to lend an Australian flavor to his comments when discussing the “Australian Images Project” and his experiences in Australia in 1988 that affected his work and direction.
