Paul Kingsley Squire
Meet Paul Kingsley Squire of London, UK.
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. He designed much of his band’s artwork and developed a portfolio that inspired his first exhibition, “Manipulations”.
Following the birth of his first child, Paul turned his focus towards digital and graphic work with web design. He never stopped making art with the result that his painting and artistic work developed with the web.
About 10 years ago he began working in oil paints to avoid spending his life in front of a computer.
Paul’s constant interest in metamorphosis and transformation can be found across his diverse body of work from the textural surfaces of his oils to the animal headed hybrids of his digital work. 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.
