Paolo Unger Dvorchik is an emerging artist whose combination of artistic passion, activist background, and technical finesse allow him to make work that is at once both poignant and informative. Although he is trained in intaglio, oil painting, and alternative processes, he works predominately in video and still photography.
Paolo Unger Dvorchik's art primarily centers on raising the public awareness of various social and political plights. His past works include a public performance piece on the torture and subsequent murder of Iraqi General Abed Hamed Mowhoush, a video on the need for alternative media sources, and an atmospheric portrayal of the paranoia that plagues our urban centers. He is currently working on a film about modern day slavery inside the United States.
Besides his humanitarian work, Paolo Unger Dvorchik also enjoys tackling theoretical issues -- structuralism, politics, and post-structuralism chiefly among them. He has been accepted into a few juried shows, the most recent of which (TakingIn) will be opening in Boston and Cambridge within a few months.
