In his own words: “I love and admire the Dutch master Van Gogh. I am particularly delighted with his mastery in the way he juxtaposes his pigments to trigger endless emotions in the eyes of the beholder". He mainly uses the impasto painting technique, which simply refers to the application of large chunks of paint to the floor or canvas.

The majority of Paul's paintings are oils on canvas. “My work is non-representative, it is semi-abstract, emotional with a strong iconography full of energy and the sun as a signature. It is modern and contemporary, and built with professional materials. Sometimes I work with traditional subjects but with a modern touch. I love nature and the depth and perspective draws you deep into the inner part of my art".
