Original artwork by Paul Wright
Artist Paul Wright is a British painter, born in Leicester in 1973. Paul studied at Falmouth College of Art obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration in 1995. Although Paul began a promising career as an illustrator, he soon moved on to concentrate on oil painting. Paul developed a unique style comprised of broad and expressive brushstrokes, while still making evident his superior draughtsmanship and colour sense. Breaking into the 2006 National Gallery BP Portrait award, Paul went on to produce sell out exhibitions for London galleries along with a growing waiting list for private commissions. Paul’s style has become very recognisable due to his use of bold palette and active surfaces.
After training as an Illustrator, I have spent the last 15 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”.Paul Wright – contemporary artist
