The Artist

Paul Bowring is an artist hailing from Bristol, England - now hiding out in Robin Hood territory (Nottingham).

Paul's paintings although seemingly figurative, are in fact depictions of a reality known only to himself. They are produced with the heavy-handed thwack of palette knife and the splat of acrylic paint against canvas (or wood, face, clothes, etc.) no doubt the origin of his nom-de-guerre.

Paul's illustrations range in theme from dark and disturbing to the colourful meandering of his Stripey Dee series. They range from fully physical to fully digital creations according to his whim and inclination. The tools he uses include stylus on tablet, pens, pencils and erasers on paper, all pushed to the limit until either his mind or the image surrenders.
