About the artist
Paul Petersen is a digital artist who is helping to pioneer a technique he's named - Spherical Art. He captures his images with a virtual camera, inside 3D polyhedral spheres. He uses their internal mathematical rhythms to make images that sustain your interest. Paul harnesses the “intelligence” these spheres possess, to create works with color harmonies and rhythms that will continue to resonate with you. Paul was recently interviewed in the web magazine Doorway to Art.
Paul studied drawing and painting at UCLA with William Brice, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He did post graduate study at the Art Center College of Design. He’s had careers as an art director, water colorist, and medical illustrator. His technical proficiency in computer graphics put him in a position to explore, for the past few years, a new area of abstract geometric image creation he calls Spherical Art.

Spherical Art, through the brilliance of Paul Petersen, literally feeds my eyes with its rare imagery and beauty, as in the piece named "Jester".
