Paul Ashton

ASHTON Paul 1974

English Artist

Award winning, Sky arts wildcard winner, bradford biennial ,etc

A self taught (who isn’t),artist ( BA, MA) and teacher of art (PGCE) I’ve studied under some notable mentors and also taught the original drawing school at Inkwell (2015)

Having trained as a figure painter and drawer, I also become a muse/ model and worked with Leeds Art with Professor Nina Kane. My artwork was used in subsequent publications from Nina.

Some of the work represented here continues an ongoing theme of beauty, real ,fabricated ,vapid ,shallow ,irrelevant versus character developed over time.

The making of the work has developed ,from the real figurative high end aspect ,but now contains abstraction, text based work and elements of spray,, I was graffiti stenciling in 1979….but in leeds.

My influences come from a lifetime of being contrary to whatever is popular.I have a fascination with human behaviour and (miss)understanding.I’ve a few Art heroes Janet Cardiff being one.

My influence almost inescapably are a real miss mash of film ,tv and music.I have the history of art learnt,but I paint what I like,end of.

Work sells worldwide and I will consider commissions.
