...'Over the years, Paul’s striking work has exhibited in major cities across the world, and garnered him ongoing acclaim. In Los Angeles, his debut solo show, Preview of Hollywood, sold out in the first two days of opening. Returning to the UK, Paul designed and created a life-size work of art which surrounded a prestigious Docklands development which was unveiled by Richard Luce, Minister of the Arts.
In 1998, powered by the death of his mother, he translated the emotional void into a hypnotic series of 3D Chrome Robots. The first to be painted on aluminium, they salute the vulnerability and compelling strength of women, and were featured at SEGA World in London for a number of years. The robots remain one of his most popular images among a fan base that is ever expanding. High profile celebrities.
Other artists. Even Banksy is an enthusiast. ‘I thought he was a pizza delivery boy’ says Paul of his passing encounter in the lobby of a Brighton PR office. Quite what the Bristol boy thought of the London boy remains unknown, but Banksy was unequivocal about the art – becoming the proud owner of an Incredible Hulk (opposite) Artist Proof. Paul is honoured to have been licensed by MARVEL to create some of their most popular Superheroes.
