Paul Goodnight was born in Chicago but grew up in New London, Ct., and in Boston. As an adolescent he was always getting into trouble and art provided an outlet to express his feelings. He served in the military and did a tour of duty in the Vietnam War. The experiences of the war had a profound effect on him and convinced him that art was not only his calling, but, once again, his salvation. Painting gave his emotions an outlet and helped him work through some of the psychological effects of the Vietnam War. Goodnight attended the Vesper George Art School in Boston and received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1975. He credits many of the teachers at both institutions as influences on his life and art, but his greatest mentor and influence is the colossal artist and muralist, John Biggers. He gets much of the inspiration for his paintings from places he has visited, including Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South America, China, Russia, among others. Goodnight boasts a number of commissions and awards and holds membership in professional associations such as the National Conference of Artists. His prints have been featured in films and on television shows such as “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”, “A Different World” and “The Cosby Show”. Hiss work is in private and public collections, which include Hampton University, Howard University and the Smithsonian Institution. He was cited in a 1988 Black Enterprise article as one of the top ten contemporary artists to watch.
