Paul Hill

Born in: 1955

United Kingdom

Biography
Paul Hill's work is gritty and urban. His past exhibition titles 'Painfully Honest', 'Black Eyed Sheilas', 'City Streets' and 'Life on the Vale' give the viewer a taste of what to expect from this painfully honest artist. Paul is based in the Midlands but his larger works are so packed with people, it is almost impossible to place them geographically. He depicts riotous behaviour, sometimes good natured, sometimes violent and criminal. In fact the figures that populate his paintings could be from anywhere. Similarly, his close-up portraits concentrate totally on the subject with very little surroundings to distract the viewer. His technique has a certain wildness about it yet the combination of colours and strong textures is strangely pleasing, offering a tactile quality that makes one want to reach out and touch the rugged faces that he depicts. Paul Hill has been exhibiting since the early 90's. He has had many solo shows, mainly in the Midlands but also 'Heads' at The Courtauld Gallery, London and 'Portraits' in Stratford. Although locally sourced, the characters he paints can be found everywhere. Paul Hill is represented in private collections in the UK and abroad, also Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery; Wolverhampton AG, Herbert Museum & AG; Staffordshire County Council; Castle Vale Housing Action Trust; Groundwork Limited and many more.
