Padwe Studio Portrait1_edited.jpg

Phil Eliot Padwe

Artist. Instructor. Creator.

I was born in Texas and raised in New York and there is a duality in me that is reflected in my artwork: Catholic (by blood) and Jewish (by adoption); Texan (by birth) and New Yorker (since birth). I value highbrow and lowbrow aesthetics equally and earnestly and enjoy the marriage of apparent opposites. I received an MFA from The New York Academy of Art and a BA in Writing from SUNY Purchase.
