Art Collector. Cultural Expert

FROM PAUL "For the African American intellectual and artistic mind, Paris has long been the center of aesthetics, beauty, and intellectual stimulation. More importantly for the African American in Paris, is the sense that you are left alone...The heart of exiled black consciousness in Paris continues to beat - the thoughts of James Baldwin, the feelings of Richard Wright, the angst of Chester Himes, and the poignancy of Ralph Ellison. "

ABOUT PAUL: M. Paul Sinclair, MBA, is a Kingston Jamaica native with a background in New York, Kingston, London, Oxford, and Paris.  Paul is an art collector, art promoter, a writer and roving blogger with special emphasis on the African American legacy in Paris since the mid 1800s.  Paul has spent over 22 years in corporate and business finance in both Europe and the United States for such companies as American Express, Honeywell, and Apple Computers, where he was a Paris-based Business Controller based for 16 countries in EMEA.  After twelve years in Paris, Paul returned to New York in 2006 where he worked as Vice President of Finance and Chief Compliance Officer for tech consultancy Volt Information Science and then for L’Oreal USA as Director Finance.  

PAUL AND PARISSOIREES: Paul is an alumni and friend of Paris Soirees, where he met then newly arriving painter Ealy Mays in 1998. Paul became a collector. The two became friends, and some 15 years later, Paul has left the corporate world to pursue his passion for writing and historical documentation, and to dedicate his time to ensuring his friend Ealy Mays’ place in Paris legacy, while developing content stories on individual achievements of key African American artists, writers and intellectuals in Paris and throughout France, since the days of Alexandre Dumas.
