Hello! My name is Leston Stanislaus Paul and I am a designer. I am also a young artist. I was born and I live on the beautiful, multicultural and vibrant twin island, Trinidad and Tobago. I love traveling mentally and physically, and when I travel, I enjoy every art form I can possibly intake at that moment. In my spare moments I enjoy looking at old movies such as “How to meet a Millionaire” with Marilyn Monroe, and my all time favourite, “The Sounds of Music” with Julie Andrews. I do enjoy the modern day films, because to me I see beyond just the action of the movie and rather the story line; in all aspects of designs and arts, I have allowed myself to see beyond just what i can see with my naked eyes. I enjoy listening music and the lyrics to that music.
More times than others I listen to music when I am sad, need inspiration or when I am driving. Whenever I physically travel, theatre shows are always at the top of my list for any activity; London and Toronto are my two preferred getaway destinations. Mamma Mia and Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, are my two top choices of musicals.
As a child I loved art and designs. I spent many hours as I can remember each day drawing my fantasies of mermaids and fairytales. Choosing a profession of becoming a designer or an artist in my home was discouraged! I was cultured to believe that the arts doesn’t pay the bill! However being a doctor to help sick people was encouraged as being my professional career. While mentally I prepared to take up my rightful position as a science student for medicine, my talent of being a designer continued to expound but to greater heights
Fifteen years later, I have started a Bachelors Degree in Computer Graphic Designs. I have designed master pieces, painted many interesting paintings, photograph and been photographed locally and internationally as a model. I won the title of Mister India Trinidad and Tobago. Represented my beloved twin island, Trinidad and Tobago as Mister Earth. Performed in theatre productions both locally and regionally (Caribbean). I have also been involve in film for local movies and short films, some of which have been aired in other countries.
I love The field of study which I have chosen. Designs and Arts, in my opinion is so similar, but yet different. Each of them work closely together. Designs is meant to address problems and solve them. Design is solving the needs of people. It is the process of the before, during and after of the creation. The function and usefulness of the artistic quality. On the other hand, Art is an aesthetic appealing/ intellectual intent that society deems culturally important. Art satisfies the wants of humans and its purpose may vary depending on the outlet for personal expressions, to setting moods/ emotions or sometimes to excite the eye of the viewers.
I enjoy photography! I love standing in front of the camera and being photographed. I love seeing my body or face or any part of me photographed. Photography in my opinion is like a dream come through. I am elated as per usual with any photo shoot I am involved.
