Paul grew up in Cambridge surrounded by a rich history of science and discovery. Of studying at Norwich Art School he says ‘I studied on a really great illustration course that encouraged us all to find our personal visual voices and inspirations.’
Paul graduated in 2011 and moved to Bristol in late 2014 where he says :‘My career really took off – doing lots of artwork for musicians, posters for the wealth of events run by performers and promoters found in this city as well as a fair bit of logo design.’
About his work he says: ‘My work in general can be anything from pure pencil and pen drawings to straight up digital collage or vectors and anywhere in between.’
‘I play with surrealism, psychedelia, and science fiction narratives creating portals to strange other worlds. In my digital work I make a concerted effort to use real textures, photographs and scanned drawings to give pixel-based work a real grounding in reality.’
You can see Paul’s new work for the show along the other multi-talented artists at the Matchbox Gallery in the upcoming ‘May the 4th be with you’ exhibition.
