Paul Cava is a photo-based artist who is known for his sensual and emotionally driven collage work. Concentrating on the figure, Cava’s work speaks to the most intrinsic of human concerns.
Paul Cava has exhibited paintings, drawings and photo-based works from 1976 to the present in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe, and his work has been collected by a broad range of private and public institutions, including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Princeton University Museum of Art, and The Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.
His work has been featured in many publications including Eyemazing Magazine and Das Magazin. Cava was a recipient of Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grants in 1981 and 1999. In 2005, the German publisher Galerie Vevais, published Walt Whitman / Paul Cava, Children of Adam from Leaves of Grass — a bold union of Whitman’s erotic poems and Cava’s art work.
