Paul graduated from art school in 2001. He is originally from London, but now lives and works in the wild and inspiring Lake District, Cumbria. His works can be found in public and private collections worldwide. Paul's paintings are represented by galleries that also sell the works of Picasso, Hirst, Rothko, Matisse, Newman and Warhol, as well as many other revered artists.
With global representation, fine artist Paul Bennett specialises in contemporary seascape and landscapes paintings, abstract paintings and contemporary portraiture paintings. The three styles are very different, but all strive to generate a sense of intimacy and isolation while leaving the subject open to interpretation.
Paul’s main aim is to create work that is most definitely painted; an antidote to mass produced visuals consumed every day. This is accomplished by using rich textures, multiple layers and brush/palette knife marks. Paul wants his paintings to tease out more than the eye can see, to draw people in and invite them to experience – not just consume – an image.
