 Paul Topolos Biography

Paul Topolos grew up in Northern California and studied fine art in the US and UK. His lifelong interest in movies led him into the entertainment industry where he began work as a storyboard artist for the video game division of his childhood hero, George Lucas. After learning many skills and working on several well received projects he went on to Lucasfilm where he briefly storyboarded on Star Wars Episode I and later was a pre-visualization matte painter on Star Wars Episode II. In 2002 Topolos came to Pixar Animation Studios. He has painted on nearly every feature film from “Finding Nemo" to the current movies "Cars 3”, “Coco" and "Incredibles II". He has worked as a sketch artist, storyboard artist, color script artist, concept designer, and matte painter on many classic Pixar movies and shorts. He has also spoken and taught around the world and is currently using his time outside of work to complete his first children's book.
