Paul DeRuvo is living and working in Norwalk, Connecticut where he is currently the Associate Printer at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking. He graduated Cum Laude from Massachusetts College of Art where he was awarded a full presidential scholarship to study printmaking. He then took classes at the Academy of Realist Art Boston continuing his dedication to classical drawing and representational artwork. He has exhibited work in New York City, Boston, San Francisco, and abroad. He recently had a solo show, Love + Isolation, in Berlin. His work explores ideas about intimacy, gender, and the transfiguring appearance of love in our daily lives, while utilizing the devotional act of representational drawing and the craft of fine printing. He is now pursuing a career both as a fine artist and as a collaborative printmaker.
