With global representation, fine artist Paul Bennett specialises in original landscape and seascape paintings, abstract paintings and also contemporary portraiture paintings. The three styles are very different, but all strive to generate a sense of intimacy and isolation while leaving the subject open to interpretation. The seascape and landscapes paintings are created from memory, rather than referring to photography, resulting in more abstracted and expressive pieces rather than realistic representation. The portraiture has a different angle and the aim is to reinvent the mass produced and give it a more visceral interpretation. All the paintings for sale are original art created using oil paint.

Found in private and public collections worldwide, Paul’s main aim is to create work that is most definitely painted; an antidote to mass produced visuals, which are consumed, almost subconsciously, in our everyday. This is accomplished by using rich textures, multiple layers and markmaking. Paul wants his paintings to tease out more than the eye can see, to draw people in and invite them to experience – not just consume – an image.
