An Exhibit of Accidental Exhibitionism


PAUL RICHMOND
Say Cheese...Cake, Starring Mike Ruiz
Painting

Featuring paintings by Paul Richmond

Opening Reception: Friday, June 11 from 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Each of the paintings in Cheesecake depicts a gay male celebrity caught in a cheeky moment of accidental exposure reminiscent of classic pin-up art from the 40s and 50s.

Some of the featured models include Jesse Archer, Perez Hilton, James St. James, Bobbie Burlesque, Dale Levitski, Bobby Trendy, Del Shores, Jack Mackenroth, Ari Gold, and more.


Paul Richmond’s paintings have been displayed at venues including the Columbus Museum of Art and OAL Gallery, and have been licensed for concert merchandise, international novel cover publication, and a greeting card line. His piece Remembering Tammy Faye was unveiled to celebrity guests at her memorial celebration in Palm Springs, and he helped organize a successful benefit for GLBTQ youth in association with his recent solo exhibition Ins and Outs.

He lives with his partner Dennis and their two whippet babies in the Short North arts district of Columbus, Ohio and keeps busy writing about himself in the third person when he's not working on art.

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
