PAUL BENNETT HIRSCH

 

Emerging from New York's East Village School in the late 70s and early 80s, Hirsch's work exemplifies and then transcends the energetic graffitist's approach to surfaces, filling them with dense patterns of signs, symbols, and calligraphic scrawls.

Hirsch has created an ideographic language that is forceful and direct in its simplicity yet profound in its implications. Throughout his growth and evolution as an artist, Hirsch's work draws upon his iconographic visual vocabulary regardless of the medium he chooses, reflecting for the viewer basic elements of our modern lives.
