Paul Moncus

I am an artist living and working in Austin, Texas

My work freqently deals with aspects of personal and social identity and place in society. I am currently working in mixed and multimedia techniques, drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation art. I also enjoy collaborating with other artists and many works on this site are collaborative. Titles and information about each artwork are available in the captions. Any collaborating artists are also listed in the captions for each artwork or series. For more information about the work on this site or more current or older work please contact me.
