About the Artist

Paul Brotherton is an internationally exhibited, award-winning Contemporary Artist and Designer from Manchester, England, UK.

 

Themed sets of acrylic paintings on canvass from his current 'Abstract Expressionist Design' series have been installed in curated art-gallery exhibitions in Manchester, Cheshire, North Wales & London (UK), Galway (Ireland), Berlin (Germany), Paphos (Cyprus), Chelsea (Manhattan, NYC USA) and Vico del Gargano & Bologna (Italy).

 

Paul initially qualified with a BA Honours degree in Graphic Design. After working for British Airways and a fifteen year career as a freelance Graphic Artist, Designer & Consultant, in January 2000 he re-focussed his studio-practice on contemporary painting, drawing and design.

 

Exhibiting since 2001, Paul's abstract, semi-abstract and figurative artworks have been installed in more than 50 solo and group art-gallery exhibitions. Paul's work has been extensively published on-line and in print. His original artworks have been acquired for numerous private collections.

 

Paul has also been awarded with two Teaching Certificates, working as a freelance Post-16 Art Lecturer from 2003 until 2013. Teaching, talks and lecturing included projects for  :-  Turnpike Gallery (Wigan Leisure & Culture Trust), Rochdale Art Gallery (Touchstones), Start Arts Project (Manchester), Arc (Stockport), Whitworth Art Gallery (University of Manchester), Cornaro Institute (Larnaca), Cyprus College of Art (Lempa) and Manchester Art Gallery.

 

"Contrasting the chaos and calm observed within natural and urban environments, themes in my work also explore human interaction, introspection and connectivity, set within the contexts of globalisation and technological development. Referencing my earlier design training and the Pop-art movement, my studio based research includes ongoing semiotic investigations through drawing and design projects. These inform the inclusion of symbolic, graphic motifs, within my contemporary abstract paintings, creating a fusion of colour, mood and style."
