Paul Feeley was an American painter and sculptor born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1910. He grew up in Palo Alto, California and lived in New York City from 1930 until his death in 1966. His work was characterized by simple, abstract forms - often organized in a clean, symmetrical pattern.
Feeley was considered an important part of the Color Field Painting movement and his contemporaries included artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Sam Francis, and Kenneth Noland. A full-scale retrospective of Feeley's work was held posthumously at the Matthew Marks Gallery in 2002 in New York City.
