Paul Kingsley Squire
MEET PAUL KINGSLEY SQUIRE OF LONDON
Paul Kingsley Squire nearly pursued a Foundation in Art, but opted instead to play guitar and sing in a band. His time in music pushed him along his circuitous path to art, as he started off designing much of his band’s artwork that eventually inspired his first exhibition “Manipulations.” Following the birth of his first child, Paul turned his focus towards digital and graphic work with web design. To avoid spending his life in front of a computer, Paul soon began working in oil paints as well. He is a self-taught artist, and grew up copying Marvel characters – especially Spiderman – and Asterix and Obelix. Paul can find inspiration in the least likely moments, and his innovative artworks reflect his own admiration for artists that deviate from trends to carve their own niches.
