Fifteen years ago PAUL WRIGHT began an enquiry into oil painting, a far leap from his training grounds in illustration. In years since, Wright has catapulted into the fine art scene, featuring twice in the National Gallery BP Portrait Awards shortlist and gaining permanent representation with Thompson’s Gallery London.
In celebration of Paul Wright's career-to-date, Thompson's present a dual-purpose exhibition, unveiling a brand new body of work alongside never before seen paintings from the artist's early career. In conjunction with the opening, a retrospective artist's book will launch to commemorate Wright's career thus far.
Reflecting from his beginnings to where he is today, the exhibition will look to Wright's future as much as his past. It will be a chance to reflect on the artist's career achievements and look ahead to the next progressions in his work.
