Pario makes art about homes, neighborhoods, and their spirit*.

Pario is Mark Smith, an urban economist and founder of Pario Research. See www.Pario.com and www.PlannedDensification.com.

Art is for sale. I make custom shrines and house name/logo packages, including digital artwork for stationary; embroidery on pillow cases, throw pillows, and other linens; cups and glasses; and other personalizations.

* ‘Time value of community’ is my label for the accretive and accruing value of dynamic, strong neighborhoods. Strong neighborhoods protect and generate value—in terms of quality of life, economic value, and reducing costs for government. Pario art is one way for me to continue to explore, learn about, and interpret the wonderful complexity of the time value of community.
