Paul S Brown was born in 1967 in North Carolina, and has lived and worked in London since 1994. He was apprenticed to leading Classical Realist D. Jeffrey Mims, and continued his training in Italy at Studio Cecil-Graves. He later taught at the Florence Academy of Art, renowned for its commitment to the academic tradition.
A true Classical Realist, Paul upholds rigorous standards and holds firm to principles of artistic integrity, emulating the techniques and materials of the Old Masters. In a process he calls ‘Slow Art’ – referencing the Slow Food movement – he works from life in the naturalist tradition, paints on linen canvas and prepares his own paints by hand, carefully selecting pigments and oils to his precise requirements.
Paul’s focus is universal beauty, and in pursuit of this he enjoys painting all subjects, concentrating on the nude and still life but also producing portraits and landscapes. He is an exquisite draftsman, and his perfectly composed works are rich with atmosphere and detail. Paul’s keen passion for nature is felt throughout his work and the influence of his upbringing, a Huckleberry Finn childhood spent roaming the outdoors and studying the world around him, is palpable.
Paul has exhibited widely, and his pictures feature in public and private collections throughout the world.
