Paul Bennett Fine Artist Bio Image

Paul Bennett


With global representation, fine artist Paul Bennett specialises in contemporary seascape and landscapes paintings, abstract paintings and also 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.


The Seascape and Landscapes paintings are created from memories rather than images to produce finished pieces, resulting in more abstracted and expressive pieces than realistic. The portraiture has a different angle and the aim is to reinvent the mass produced and give it a more visceral interpretation. All the paintings for sale are original art created using oil paint.


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 layersand 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.

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.


'The Light and The Darkness' an introspective study featuring a exclusive new series of seascape and landscape oil paintings in Paul’s signature style, inspired by the wilds of Western Scotland and Skye, will be released at Padstow Gallery on 01/09/18.
