About Allan Paulose
Allan Paulose is the son of veteran international artist and art teacher K J Paulose. He pretty much grew up around art and has been orchestrating occasional art exhibits and art competitions along with K J Paulose since 2009.
After an arduous search spanning a couple decades, he had clarity on his 'Ikigai'(Japanese for a sense of purpose) - he wanted to professionally represent, promote and curate art by under-represented but talented artists like his dad. In Q4 2020, he was part of the founding team at Art on the Square art gallery, Bentonville, AR, where he volunteered over 400 hours helping with gallery design, installations, operations, marketing, inventory and event management. In 2021/22, he started working with established local artists to kick start the learning process and curated several self funded exhibits in spaces sponsored by WeWork Labs NWA. Allan is part of the 2023 Interform Art Annual Curatorial Cohort where he looks forward to learning more about curating from the real professionals in this space. He has a background in mechanical engineering(design) and business administration. Allan enjoys his earned spare time traveling to different countries and experiencing their art and culture, besides trail running with his dog when he's back home in Bentonville, AR.
