Paul Light Jr


Abstract artist Paul Light Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1966. Before earning his MFA in painting at SCAD-Atlanta in 2012, Light had an extensive business career where he fueled his creative side as a graphic artist, and product designer. It was in these years that he met and was mentored and greatly influenced by Paul Chelko, a well-respected artist and philosopher who lived and worked in Atlanta.

Later, Light earned a BFA in Animation and opened a small painting studio at Tula Art Center in Atlanta. Subsequently, upon earning his MFA in Painting at SCAD Atlanta, Light returned to Tula Art Center and opened a new studio.
