About Paul Price
“After settling in LA, I began producing mostly street designs from manhole covers, water sewers, etc.,” said Paul. “Eventually, one day as I was doing some work on the Walk of Fame and I reproduced the Marilyn Monroe star. The next day I brought the artwork directly to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce who loved my work and helped me to secure an agreement with Walk of Fame Art Productions to be the only artist officially licensed to reproduce the stars on the famous Walk of Fame.”
Among Paul’s buyers are the stars themselves and his artwork can be found in some of Hollywood's hottest night spots. His artwork sells unframed from an affordable $125 to $150, of which he provides the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce a percentage to help support the care and promotion of the Walk of Fame.
