Paul B hails from a family of Anglican pastors, and schooling in a Roman Catholic institution enhanced his curiosity about the schism in the Christian faith. He found his voice in the visual vocabulary of Christian icons, though his is a more personal expression of the faith rather than the one that is propagated.
A self taught artist Paul’s works are largely inspired by biblical themes, parables and fantasy which he interweaves with experiences from his life. His style is typical of Byzantine medieval iconography with strong overtones of Indianness in his palette and intricate detail.
Paul works mainly in 24 carat gold leaf and oils on canvas, wood, porcelain and glass His complex compositions are unplanned and he painstakingly details every space of the painting. He guilds the painting to give the final flourish, making them timeless pieces of perfection.
