" 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, or music composition and I am led by an exploratory drive to just see what happens if I do this or that..."

Paul Kingsley Squire is a London based artist and musician.

Paul has created a diverse portfolio through painting, digital art and music composition.

His work splits into several distinct categories.

Painting

Abstract Landscapes – Oil on Canvas

 

Abstract Landscape oil paintingThe abstract landscapes use thick layers of 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.

 

Portraits – Oil on Canvas

 

Portraits in oil by London based artistThe oil portraits use a different technique and style – 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.

 

Digital Art
