Paul Kenton is a UK-based contemporary artist, acclaimed for his cityscape paintings which capture the unique energy of cities across the world. Paul’s paintings aim to transport the viewer, giving them a sense of the distinctive mood, pace and light of a scene, through layers of bold colour, dripped lines and gestural paint marks. His intuitive and energetic painting approach gives fluidity and life to otherwise rigid urban structures.
Predominantly working on aluminium, Paul’s paintings transform as they reflect the surrounding light, much like the architectural forms within the cities he paints.
