Paul-Emmet Costelloe

I graduated from the university of Brighton with a BA in fine art painting in 2005 followed by an MA in fine art from the Grays School of Art in 2007.

My love of painting began when I attended an art class at the age of 8 which was run by Irish artist Pauline Bewick. Even then at young age I had a very distinctive style which was brightly coloured and very bold shapes which was very eye catching. As the years have gone on my style has very much progressed. My work now is very much focused on the the flatness of colour and the elimination of perspective which add’s to my personal take on the modern abstract cubism style. My use of the palette knife and brush strokes creates a resonant atmosphere and an almost sculptural presence in each painting I produce.

There have been several artists who have influenced my work over the years and they are Patrick Heron, Matisse, Alan Davie and Ben Nicholson.
