Paul Robinson grew up in the Cumbrian village of Lazonby, in the heart of the Eden Valley. Moving to London, he became a successful illustrator, working for many publications including The Sunday Times, Radio Times and Time Out magazine, whilst also exhibiting at The Thumb Gallery in London’s Soho.
Eventually moving away from the world of commissioned work, Paul began to develop his own projects, pursuing his fascination for the City (of London) and its workers.
Having moved to Norfolk in 1999, he now has a whole new world to explore; in contrast to the City with it’s high rise office blocks to the Norfolk landscape consisting of an immeasurable expanse of sea and sky, Paul admits it proved quite a challenge.
But with not a city worker in sight, he has now turned his attention to the subjects on his door-step to fuel his imagination - the result being a wonderful new series of paintings which give us a quirky and humorous snapshot of everyday life on and around the North Norfolk coast. Paul Robinson’s work is included in private, corporate and public collections, worldwide.
