American Contemporary artist Paul Weiner explores political and social discourse through a method of abstract painting that draws on themes of neo-expressionism and post-conceptual practices.
Many of Weiner’s recent paintings and sculptures grapple with America’s contemporary identity and history, generating abstract, obscured, and distressed representations of a culture in flux. He is also known for his site-specific social media paintings, which can be found on Instagram. Weiner’s paintings contain a library of symbols that refer to the American flag, art history, cultural hybridity, sports, folk history, the legal system, and the military industrial complex.
In 2015 Weiner received a BFA in Painting from Syracuse University. Weiner's works have been included in non-profit and university museums such as Mana Contemporary and York St John University, as well as a variety of international gallery exhibitions in Australia, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
