Paul Arsenault

From the Artist

A native of Montreal, Paul Arsenault grew up in Hingham, MA, where his love for the sea and travel emerged. A graduate from the Art Institute of Boston in 1973. In 1974, he began his professional painting career. With Naples as his base, he has embarked on painting trips to the Caribbean, Central and South America, Asia, the South Pacific, Indonesia, Australia, and lived in Hana, Maui for a few years.

Paul's early exposure to and knowledge of working ports and exotic harbors, combined with his talent for zeroing in immediately on the essence of a place, have made him a popular choice for commissions requiring extensive yet efficient travel. Paintings from these trips hang in public places and private and corporate collections around the world.

Paul's vibrant and widely collected paintings reflect a rhythm and pattern that distinguish his easily recognizable style. His lifelong pursuit to paint contemporary life in coastal communities is enhanced by his passion for history and his natural storytelling ability.
