In A Whole New Light Paul Seftel hails from London and New York City. After studying art in Edinburgh, Scotland in the early 90s, he traveled to the USA, spending years in New Mexico and Colorado. Commissioned to create custom interiors, abstract frescos, and paintings for commercial and residential spaces in Colorado, NYC and Detroit, his work has been written about in the New York Times, and also collected by virtuosos and CEOs. His audience and collectors are attracted to his painted forces of light and stone that have been made using ancient techniques and modern formulas. Blending Egyptian and Italian Fresco influences with abstract, expressive, organic, and geomorphic qualities of 20th century modernism, Seftel is original and innovative in his process. His hidden gems are owned by aficionados and harbingers of style, gracing violinist Joshua Bell’s penthouse, featured in Vogue, and many homes and offices of entrepreneurs, lawyers, and financial advisory firms around the globe. Seftel recently moved to the Monterey Peninsula for renewed inspiration, temperate climate, and coastal living. His work is an ongoing investigation into the phenomenon of light and color. Consumed by the colliding elements of earth, ocean, and sky in abundance, Seftel is at home in this corner of the world, known for its many great artists, writers, and pioneers. Paul’s work is an important link in the chain between the future and legacy of painting here in California.
