John Vasconcellos – More about

Originally from Portugal, Paulo Mendes is a self-taught photographer whose primary artistic intention is the expression of nature’s beauty in all its infinite perfection.

Being self-taught has allowed Paulo the freedom and confidence to explore different mediums and techniques which have resulted in his signature style.

A long-time resident of Maui and a life-long surfer, the island is an endless source of inspiration for his work – from its spectacular physical beauty to the gentle spirit of Aloha found in her people.

In addition to his fine art work, Paulo is also an active volunteer in local community causes, with a special interest in improving the lives of Maui’s youth.
