Manchester born, Lyon based, Paul has been making marks and slopping paint for fifteen years.
Having screen printed for five years, Paul decided to move country (fuck you Brexit) and finally 'go it alone' and produce art.
Paul’s work zeros in on bullies, using humour and disturbing imagery to express a poisonous dislike to unfairness and cruelty . His works are littered with semiotics, sometimes of state sponsored violence, batons, rubber bullets etc and often of animals. All of this righteous anger may become a little tiresome for the viewer, however, juvenile doodles and jokes are never far behind in Paul’s work, an effort to reveal that he too is searching for answers. Or perhaps writing things like ‘Boris Johnson is a cotton headed bag of donkey farts’ on a piece of work just makes him smile after a long day.
Colour! Glorious colour is equally important as content in Paul’s work, having never heard the term ‘muted palette’ whole spectrums bounce off the boards and smack you right in your third eye. However vivid, his use of colour is not random, but uses the concept of complementary colour to enhance a painting.
In closing, after making an effort to sound respectable and writing in the third person, even though Paul’s fingers at this moment are punching every word into the computer, he would like to extend an invitation to enjoy his work.
