Based in United Kingdom
Paul Kingsley Squire is a London based artist intrigued by themes of metamorphosis and transformation.
He has created a diverse portfolio including abstract landscape oil paintings, portraits in oil, digital art created with a digital pen and tablet and intricate drawings.
...Abstract landscape paintings which use thick layers of oil paint to create textures and depth. Paul is interested in how the medium of oil paint can be used to create effects and suggest forms within the painting itself.
These landscapes generate an otherworldly yet naturalistic image, leaving the subject open to interpretation. The intention is to create paintings using experimental techniques, producing work that is abstracted and expressionistic.
METAMORPHICA & The Danse Macabre...
...is an ongoing project drawing inspiration from mythology, symbolism, pop culture and contemporary fashion.
These animal headed hybrids and dead beat fashionistas mix humans with paganistic totemism and skeletal decadence, resulting in a highly stylised ultra modern icon.
Using a digital pen & tablet, a framework is digitally drawn in exquisite detail and then meticulously coloured, to create the finished artwork.
The completed pieces are each available as acrylic (perspex) and aluminium mounted prints, or archival Giclée prints which can be traditionally framed.
...is an ongoing portfolio of pencil drawings and paintings exploring the interlinking relationship between natural landscapes and the human, combining detailed drawings of woods and trees within outlines of (mainly) female forms.
Meet the Humans...
... is a collection of portraits in oil that use a different technique, flat brushes and palette knives, rather than the round brush techniques employed in the abstract landscapes.
As well as capturing an aspect of the sitters personality he paints a 'dynamic’ picture with vivid brushstrokes and colour.
