Born in 1923 - United States
Born in 1923 in Kansas City, Paul Jenkins is an American painter.
He studied art at Kansas City Art Institute and simultaneously began to work as a ceramist at James Welson. He continued his artistic training at Art Student League, in New York.
In this context of strong artistic creations, he felt inspired by abstract expressionism but modern painters as well, like Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin and Wassily Kandinsky.
His ceramist training strongly influenced his way of painting as the artist uses procedures, peculiar to pottery enamel as well as techniques belonging to decorative art or watercolors. His creative procedure is therefore his own. Paul Jenkins realizes abstract work. He doesn't give them life through their subject but because they are already there. For this, the painter focuses on the composition and association of colors.
