Retro Collection

Each piece in the collection takes a classic 80s symbol as their focal point, layering them with bold painted abstraction.

Vibrant neon paint is dripped, poured and scraped over the metal reflecting a sense of the restlessness of the 1980s with its non-stop development of exciting new technologies.


Where did the idea for a Retro Collection originate?

You might also enjoy these other Retro paintings from Paul's 365 Project. This was a year-long journey exploring a different range of mediums & working at sizes often smaller, than with his studio pieces. In many cases these formed the studies behind the larger studio works.

I'm always looking to use the unique properties of each metal to my advantage with each piece.
