From quirky comedy to a touching film documenting the Hispanic culture, Paul Davids' creativity knows no boundaries. He is best known for his acclaimed film, "Roswell," and his engaging "Transformers" scripts. He is a bit of a "folk hero" in the UFO world and enjoys keeping up with his multitudes of fans!

 

It is well noted that creative individuals have artistic gifts that span many art forms. This artist is one of them, and we take great pleasure in documenting this versatile creative spirit in an online format.

 

When studying the artist's early influences, it is apparent, that his fascination with the European impressionists would have a strong influence on his painting style. In addition, the risk-taking that was evident in his film endeavors has translated over into his painting career - filled with experimentation and gigantic leaps of faith.

 

Vincent van Gogh, his life and his work, have had - and continue to have - a powerful impact on the artist. This is evident throughout his portfolio, which is rich with swirls of pure, thick pigment, along with lush, layered skies and water.  Paul Davids' delightful film, "Starry Night" puts a fascinating spin on van Gogh's life and work.
