Paul Konchagulian

Paul was born in New York in 1962. He received his BFA from Alfred University College of Ceramics in Alfred, New York. Paul’s belief is that steel sculpture doesn’t have to be geometrical or rigid. His vision is to explore the softer more malleable side of steel’s properties while still maintaining its visual presence and strength. Paul’s love of steel sculpture has taken him around the world. He has spent time exhibiting and creating commissioned work in Massachusetts, New York and Japan. He currently lives in Omaha, NE where he has exhibited in local galleries and has permanent sculpture installed throughout the city. Paul also regularly teams up with local architects and developers creating and fabricating custom work.

Additional Information: “aha-Mo!” the prairie individual, welcomes you to the City of Omaha. “aha-Mo!” is sponsored by The Architectural Offices, Paul Konchagulian, Dundee Bank, Werner Paint and Nielsen-Baumert Engineering. This piece is made exclusively of mild plate steel. The three main forms will be welded steel plate. Depth of the piece was achieved by adding sides to the profile of the hand and fingers. The steel was cut to shape with plasma cutter. The steel pieces have Mr. Konchagulian’s trademark stitching. This project is very sustainable. The United States Green Building Council lists steel as the only material which has at least 25% post consumer recycled content.
