About This Work
“With this image I wanted to highlight the interesting intersection where King and Cross Sts. meet at an angle; to try to capture the way the architecture against the towering escarpment backdrop conjures up that quaint village feel of Dundas.”
Paul Elia is a graduate of The Ontario College of Art and Design, where he began integrating Drawing and Painting with Digital Media. Paul has worked closely with Toronto filmmaker Judith Doyle. Together they formed Reading Pictures, an innovative multi-media organization providing consultation and production services. Paul also worked on art direction and design with the modern abstract painter Ben Woolfitt.
In 2007, Paul moved back to his hometown of Hamilton and began creating his large format cityscapes. The work has grabbed the hearts and imaginations of the Hamilton community. The success has followed alongside a cultural renaissance happening in the city.
In 2012, Paul opened a studio gallery in a unique mid-century modern home in West Hamilton. With the towering escarpment as a backdrop, it was a stunning setting for viewing the large panoramic prints. In 2018, Paul took on an ambitious adaptive re-use project converting a large industrial building in Hamilton’s East End into an incredible new gallery for his work with a modern loft style home above.
