Artistic Focus Philip Paval was not only an artist, but a celebrity. He made acquaintances and even friends with both European and Hollywood royalty. Some of his fine silver work was given as gifts to these friends. And Paval became well known in Los Angeles for his silver and gold sculptures as well as his portraits in oil of Hollywood celebrities. Later in his career, Paval’s paintings were of a less serious nature, including clowns as his subjects, and later moving into abstraction.
• As a teenager in his native Denmark, Philip Paval
studied art and was apprenticed to a silversmith.
