A professional fine artist, graphic artist, designer, photographer and teacher, Paul Baldassini has been working with graphic images for over 30 years.

A native of Quincy, MA, Paul owned and managed Paul Baldassini Graphic Design in Boston’s Back Bay. For over 20 years, his creative team provided graphic design and advertising services to a diverse range of clients including corporate, private and non-profit organizations. Despite a hectic and demanding schedule, Paul managed daily sketching, usually in the morning at his favorite café, and drawing and painting in the evening at his home studio.
His dedicated study of 16th century and other master painters, combined with his vast knowledge of modern painting techniques and digital tools results in contemporary realist paintings that appeal to art collectors who appreciate both how a painting is created and the nature of the subject portrayed in a painting. Through discipline and assiduous study of people, objects and their settings, Paul attends to details that give his paintings a mannered, but nonetheless, arresting quality.
Paul, his wife and daughter reside in Middletown, CT. In addition to painting, Paul continues to provide graphic art and design services for select clients in Connecticut. He is available for commissioned works as well as instruction and consultation in digital publishing, image editing, painting drawing & sketching, and photography fine art for serious art students, corporations, academic & private institutions.
