About

Paul Levy (American, b. 1944) An established designer and illustrator, Paul M. Levy was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1944. He received his B.S. in Industrial Design from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1968, returning later to do independent study there. He also did independent study at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York, in 1969 and received an M.F.A. in Sculpture and Printmaking from Ohio University, Athens. From 1964 through 1971 he worked for design firms in Ohio, New York and California. From 1971 through 1973 he taught at the University of Cincinnati and Ohio University, Athens. He has exhibited in galleries, museums and art groups. In 1971 he was one of a number of artists who created enormous outdoor murals in a Cincinnati project called "Urban Walls." His graphic designs and illustrations for such firms as Container Corporation of America have appeared in publications such as Fortune, Business Week and Forbes Magazine. His design for a Cambridge flag appeared on the cover of The Art Gallery. He has done a most unusual and interesting series of illustrations of variations on the United States flag, beginning with one titled "The Right of Assembly" in 1970 which developed into a suite of fifteen prints. He has a collection of American flag artifacts. "I believe that the conditions which govern flag design add another level and dimension to being an artist- designer," he states. His design features the initial "C" for Cambridge, in thirteen concentric red stripes against white. The stripes recall the appearance of printed circuitry, one product of Cambridge industry. Paul Levy did a well known series depicting artistic representations of a selection of the rights granted to each American under the United States Constitution. Levy, who started the series while living in Cincinnati in 1970 and finished it after moving to Cambridge, Massachusetts, received his artistic training at the University of Cincinnati and earned an MFA from Ohio University in 1973. He did some abstract geometric prints in the style of Vasarely, Agam, Pol Bury, Julio le Parc and the other Denise Rene gallery artists. He also did some Pop Art style prints in the 1970's with Carl Solway gallery.
