ARTIST INFORMATION


'After training as an Illustrator, I have spent the last 14 years developing a painterly language through which I seek to capture a vitality beyond the establishment of a mere ‘likeness’ to the subject. Whilst I appreciate the importance of the individual being recognisable, the subjects are glimpsed rather than exposed, their inner selves hinted at but ultimately inscrutable.

Though I often work on a large, potentially imposing scale, the work remains approachable through fluency of brush mark and a rich palette. The spaces the subjects inhabit are often indeterminate, providing an atmosphere that allows for ambiguity of psychological state. The subjects retain their integrity and yet a sense of intimacy is evoked.' - Paul Wright

Paul Wright was born in 1973 in Leicester. In 1995, he graduated with a degree in Illustration from Falmouth School of Art. Paul has since formed his own distinct style and gone on to exhibit internationally, including the India Arts Festival 2012 in Mumbai and The Russell Collection in Texas in 2010.

Paul's works entice the viewers with their striking use of colour and their lively and vibrant brushstrokes. His works focus on an array of objects, figures and places infusing them all with his vibrant visual language. The painterly gestures both distort and shape the subject matters, giving the works a distinct energetic presence.
