Paul Kremer was born in 1971 and is an American artist who lives and works in Houston, Texas. His style can be described as a graphical interpretation of Color Field painting, an abstract style that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s; and Minimalism, which has its origins in various art and design movements. His work could be seen in numerous group and solo shows. A range of artworks is held in private collections around the cities of New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Austin, Aspen, Norfolk, Birmingham, Hong Kong, Cannes, Toronto, and Lima.
In 2013 Kremer began a Tumblr site called Great Art in Ugly Rooms, which has been described as "the visual equivalent of a Steven Wright stand up routine" and as the "enchanting train wreck that occurs when a truly great work of art is juxtaposed with the most revolting of interiors.".The site quickly gained a loyal cult following worldwide and began to garner critical attention from a number of online media sites.
