Historical Context:
Paul Collins takes inspiration for his work from his extensive travel through Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Collins was commissioned for the 18 x 8 foot mural of Grand Rapids native Gerald R. Ford in 1975, currently on display at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. Through his art Collins demonstrates a passion for revealing the essence of humanity, the essence of noblemen, warriors and commoners alike.
