Birds on a Wire

May 29, 2012

Written by Alana Trevino Itaya Photos by Mafer Arce A solitary bird is rarely seen sitting on a telephone wire. Often they are there in groups, lending and giving warmth, and reveling in the companionship of the whole. Amy Paul finds herself in the center of a thriving art community within San Diego. It is there that she supports her fellow artists and they support her. She is dedicated to the inspiration of the future thru her teaching, her store Pigment, and her art. She is the first to admit that though she does not have it all figured out, she is learning, and she is ready to offer her support to the next generation of artists whenever they may need it. “I preface everything with humility. I am spending one day at a time trying.” Graffiti Beach has admired Amy's work for quite some time. Prior to us having our store in San Diego, we sold her artwork in our Holiday Pop-up in Venice Beach, Ca. Her artwork was a major hit there! We have to give a shout out to her amazing work and equally amazing store, Pigment located in North Park San Diego. We went behind the scenes to visit Amy in her studio and her store. Check out some of our featured photos. To read the full story stay tuned for the Summer Issue of Graffiti Beach's Ezine coming out June 5th! To shop Amy's work visit her store at 3827 30th St, San Diego, CA or shop online at www.ShopPigment.com
