" For me art and music have always served as a form of escape, towards a freedom of sorts. I am expressing an inner state of being, a yearning for other worlds and realities, whether through painting, digital art, drawing or music composition and I am led by an exploratory drive to just see what happens if I do this or that..."

London based artist Paul Kingsley Squire...

...creates paintings, drawings and digital art,  building a diverse portfolio including ethereal abstract landscapes, anthropomorphic animals, and figures inspired by metamorphosis and transformation .

...the abstract landscape paintings use thick layers of oil paint to create textures and depth. Paul is interested in how the medium of oil paint can be used to create effects and suggest forms within the painting itself.

These landscapes generate an otherworldly yet naturalistic image, leaving the subject open to interpretation. The intention is to create paintings using experimental techniques, producing work that is abstracted and expressionistic.

METAMORPHICA & The Danse Macabre...

“Metamorphica & The Danse Macabre” is an ongoing project drawing inspiration from mythology, symbolism, pop culture and contemporary fashion.

These animal headed hybrids and dead beat fashionistas mix humans with paganistic totemism and skeletal decadence, resulting in a highly stylised ultra modern icon.

Using a digital pen & tablet, a framework is digitally drawn in exquisite detail and then meticulously coloured, to create the finished artwork.

The completed pieces are each available as acrylic (perspex) and aluminium mounted prints, or archival Giclée prints which can be traditionally framed.

Meet the Humans...

... is a collection of portraits in oil that use a different technique, flat brushes and palette knives, rather than the round brush techniques employed in the abstract landscapes.

As well as capturing an aspect of the sitters personality he paints a 'dynamic’ picture with vivid brushstrokes and colour.
