Paul Bartlett SWLA
Is an elected member of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) and won “Artist of the Year” in 2006 and the Langford Press award in 2012 at their annual exhibition at London’s Mall Galleries. He has twice been a category winner and overall runner-up in the David Shepherd “Wildlife Artist of the Year” competition in 2009 and 2010 and winner of the ‘British Birds’ category for the “BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year” in 2009. His work has featured in numerous art publications and several books.
Paul’s unique eye-catching style is the cumulative result of all his experimentation with technique and mediums over his artistic career. Often combining collage with acrylics or pastels, he uses pertinent publications for his works, adding an extra facet to the painting by sourcing articles which relate to the subject. More recently he has developed the use of papier maché in his work to create highly textural semi-sculptural pieces.
Paul has held major solo exhibitions throughout the UK and regularly contributes to exhibitions at the Mall Galleries in London. He has also exhibited in the US, France, and Poland.
