Paul Anthony Rouphail received a BFA magna cum laude from Carnegie Mellon University in 2010.
Besides his primary painting practice, he has also experimented in making films.
His work has been exhibited across the East Coast.
"There’s something monolithic about Paul Rouphail’s work that I really admire. They’re a little bit spooky, and they remind me of the feeling I get when I walk my dog late at night and I look up at the stars, at least the few I can see out of the haze of the city, and they start to seem closer and more important than the things on our terrestrial world. I begin to wonder if there’s somebody up there watching me back. Then I turn a corner and run smack into a Starbuck’s."
