- Other Information
Born in 1957, Douglas, Isle of Man.
Paul’s early Artistic influences were the Royal Society & post-Impressionist painters Edward Seago & Edward Wessen.
Since those early years, Paul has developed his own style, with a particular onus on lighting and speed. Some believe he is so skilled in his style that, he has successfully managed to give an element of life and movement to each of these creations.
Not surprising then, this is why he is regarded in Motor sporting circles as one of Our finest Motorsport Artists.
More surprisingly to some however, might be the lesser known fact that, Paul is a very accomplished Multi-media Artist and skilled Landscape painter.
The Isle of Man has many beautiful vistas which, can & do inspire Artists. However, in order to effectively and accurately capture these unique lighting effects, one cannot always rely upon just one medium.
It is for this precise reason that, Paul loves to experiment with and incorporate into, a mix of different media. Some of which are Oils, Watercolour and Pastels.
Education & Experience:
He attended the Isle of Man College for his foundation into the Arts, where he was taught by the late Eric Houlgrave & the late Norman Sayle. During his time at the College his teachers instilled in him a love and enthusiasm for Art.
Paul has been a member for some time now, of the Island’s most renowned Art Exhibition Centre the ‘Sayle Gallery’ named in honour of the Late Norman Sayle. Paul has had many successful solo exhibitions here. As well as, contributing to group exhibitions in the UK, Ireland and the British Isles.
Paul’s Motor Racing Artwork in certain parts throughout Europe has now developed into an almost cult following. As a result of which, he regularly has to ship both Originals and printed works to mainland Europe. More recently however, his Artwork is becoming known in countries such as Canada, United States and even Australia.
Paul’s next Island exhibition in the Sayle Gallery is booked for November 2010. Check out his site for more details about this event www.paulparkermanxartist.com.
