The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond,  to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. A listing in the OAR does not confer an endorsement, approval, or verification by the Ohio Arts Council.

Paul Kroner is a visual artist and designer living in Cincinnati, Ohio. His art includes representative and non-representative works in oils, acrylics, bronze, illustration, and other media, including limited edition prints and animation.

Paul Kroner was born a maker. This need to make led Paul into a career as a graphic designer, but his desire to make art was always alive in his heart. In his late 40s, no longer able to keep his artistic drive secondary in his life, his practice exploded.

Born the sixth child in a family of eight, Paul grew up in a tiny house where art was not only encouraged by his parents, it was his natural instinct.

Never one to be boxed into a single mode of execution or expression, Paul moves fluidity from one medium to another — from representational to abstract, and 2D to 3D — with a focus on intra and inter-personal relationships.

Paul’s work has been shown in numerous galleries and solo and group shows in New England and the Midwest and, along with his paintings, are in private collections nationally.

Artist Statement

At the heart of my work is a desire to find the intersection of art and design. I strive for a place where aesthetics and composition work in harmony to communicate, guide, and engage the viewer in a unique experience.

As a trained designer, I bring a process-oriented and iterative approach to my art. I move fluidly from one medium to another and my work spans from representational to abstract, 2D to 3D, and analog to digital. The goal of creating a visual narrative that invites the viewer to be an integral part of the story remains constant.

For me, the process is as important as the final outcome. How an armature is built, what the initial drawings reveal, how the underlying structure guides you through the work, are all glimpses into the thinking of the artist. As a viewer, this is where you can connect with the humanity of the artist, which helps bring the work to life.
