1954 - ?

Paul Evans

Born in 1954. Paul studied illustration and printmaking at Eastbourne College of Art and Design 1972-1976 under tutors Robert Tavener and Trevor Kemp and since graduating has made his living solely from his painting. He commenced exhibiting his work at the Ralph Lewis Gallery in Brighton’s Lanes, when he started to sell everything that he could paint. Decades of familiarity has enabled Paul Evans to showcase nature in all his glory, but it is his innate skill, that allows him to incorporate the sounds, smells and atmosphere of one specific moment which are most impressive. Paul is know as one of the leading landscape painters working today and is widely known for his highly individual watercolours, acrylics and etchings inspired by East Anglia’s landscape and coast, Sussex Downland, the Kent Weald, Cornwall’s rugged coast and moorland. He moved to Suffolk in 1991, as the owner of Lavenham Contemporary Gallery in the High Street. He is constantly experimenting with techniques and materials, finding new ways to reflect the changing light and seasons in his work and since 1976 has had some sixty-five solo exhibitions and numerous group shows, attended by large numbers of collectors and very often selling out. Many of his images have been used for greetings cards, calendars and limited edition prints with several large publishers such as Aquarelle, Kingsmead Publications, Royle Publications and Royal Doulton. His work has been purchased by collectors worldwide including America, Japan, Australia and Europe.
