Paul Newman

Paul Newman’s painting shifts between landscape, the figure and abstraction. Recurring references include 18th c English landscape painting, the Ford Escort white van and classic monsters of the movies such as The Fly. His studio environment also influences his imagery; peripheral residues that result from the creative process, such as daubing on the studio wall, creep into the pictures.

Born in 1973, Paul lives and works in Birmingham. Solo exhibitions include Stage (2015) at mac birmingham and After the Flood (2014) at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery, while group shows include Contemporary Drawings from Britain, Xi’an, China (2015), Marmite IV Painting Prize (2012-13), Rotate (2012) Contemporary Art Society in London, Painting Show (2011-12) at Eastside Projects, Birmingham and The Jerwood Drawing Prize (2004-05). Collaborative projects include Babelling (2013) with David Miller and Ian Andrews and Solitary Natures (2008) with Matthew Krishanu at Lewisham Arthouse in London. Paul is a visiting lecturer at Birmingham City University and Loughborough University.
