About the Artist
Born in Brisbane 1950, Paul attended the Brisbane College of Art and worked in the fashion industry for ten years before becoming a full-time artist in 1980. His work is represented in numerous private and corporate collections in Australia as well as the USA, Canada, Argentina, South Africa, UK, France, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Japan.
Paul Paints a variety of subjects, often drawing on the power and beauty of nature for inspiration. The portrayal of dynamic and striking sunsets, gentle riverbanks with quiet reflections, the outback, countryside and beach scenes. He portrays nature quite faithfully and with his individual style and sense of composition, presents work of great interest.
It is the familiarity of Paul Evans subjects that strikes a chord with so many. His works recall memories of days spent at the beach, and imbue a sense of wonder at Australia's spectacular natural wilderness. It is a rare privilege to find an artist who can create and capture such emotions.
Paul Evans' work is said to be "conceptualised and abstract as the artist concentrates on capturing the impossibly transient imagery of moving water and wet sand...a tour de force of oil paint transparency, they may be the best looking shoreline paintings since Elioth Gruner."
