Raised in the Los Angeles suburb of Eagle Rock, Paul Chamberlain began his initial foray into the art world in high school and continued through his graduation from the renowned Art Center College of Design.
He then spent several years at design firms in Detroit. His most notable design, the logo for the Bay Area Rapid Transit train still graces the front of each BART train.
Returning to California in the mid-60's, Chamberlain settled into the advertising/graphic design field. Creative projects included annual reports, outdoor signage, print ads, brochures and even pop-up greeting cards.
Finally, encouraged by a close friend and working artist, he returned to his easel and, through sketching and traditional oil painting, rekindled his fine art creative flame. Chamberlain's travels throughout California and the west - from his backyard, the Glendale Verdugo Hills, through his favorite Kernville area of the Sierras, to the deserts, beaches and cities - have provided him with a rich variety of subjects to capture on canvas.
Chamberlain's love of color and composition have led him to explore both the Plein Air and studio experience. His studies with such notable artists as Calvin Liang, Karl Dempwolf and Frank Serrano, plus the visual influence of master artists Sam Hyde Harris, Sergei Bongart and Maynard Dixon help him sharpen his eye for the strong color palette, interesting subjects and unique compositions.
Paul Chamberlain is a member of the California Art Club and the Glendale Art Association.
