Rudolph Bostic worked for years at a commercial baking company in Savannah, GA. It was a good job, but he says he couldn't wait to get home, go up to his room, and paint. Sometimes he painted all night. He salvaged cardboard boxes and lids from giant barrels of flour from the bakery to use for his canvasses. He liked painting on the smooth surface, at first using leftover house paint, later acrylics. In time he became famous for turning scraps of cardboard into artistic masterpieces. In his unique style, his paintings most often depict popular scenes from Bible stories or mythology. He frequently paints a border to frame the main image, or he even attaches a painted frame cut from cardboard.
Always interested in art, Rudy made his own cardboard cutout toys as a child. He is grateful for the support his mother gave him, and he went through some difficult times in recent years after she passed away. He is doing well today, thanks to help from his family. Rudy Bostic is an easy-going man with big smile, who loves to paint and is proud of what he has created.
