Royal Academy Schools artist, Paul Harber discusses the influences
and events that inform his painting. He will talk about his work in the exhibition, the models he uses, his approach to visual story telling and his use of humour and social comment.
Although Paul’s work is strongly figurative, he will discuss how artists like
Kandinsky and Mondrian have informed his work. Paul trained at Chelsea School of Art, did his MA at the Royal Academy Schools and was a lecturer in Fine Art and Art History. He has exhibited widely both in London and beyond and is a regular exhibitor with the Royal Society of Portrait Artists and the Royal Academy Summer Shows. His work is in national collections, including the Arts Council and Glasgow University.
His work is in the figurative, realist tradition and often refers to previous periods of art history including Renaissance, Counter Reformation and Roman art, but always concerns contemporary life. His work sometimes contains references to gesture and symbols; using iconography ‘out of context’ in a gentle, humorous and ironic manner.
