Artist Entrepreneur

Minnihan Painting was founded in 2000 by painter and muralist Paul Minnihan. He leads a dedicated team of professional painters and artisans who execute complex and detailed creations, as well as flawlessly painting a room in one color. His team is personable but quiet, professional and focused when they work. They paint things the right way, in a timely manner without shortcuts.

Paul plans and monitors all jobs, and is on-site regularly. He continues to research and explore painting techniques, constantly adding to the team’s repertoire. Paul regularly travels abroad for work and pleasure, and the spirit and craft of different cultures can be seen in much of their work.

A native of Minnesota, Paul is a long-time resident of Chicago and a 1991 graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In his fine art, which he executes in a variety of media, including oil, watercolor and graphite, Paul seeks to capture the essence of his subjects while being true to his concept of representation. Through Minnihan Painting, Paul works to realize the essence of his clients’ goals.

“After seeing your portfolio I saw that you had a very unique array of talent, very different from many others out there. You are a spectacular artist; thank you for your hard work and artistry on-site.”
