Paul Evans

Paul A. Evans, was born in 1954. He studied illustration and printmaking at Eastbourne College of Art and Design 1972-1976, under tutors Robert Tavener (1920-2004) and Trevor Kemp (born 1935) and since graduating, has been a professional painter. He commenced exhibiting at the Ralph Lewis Gallery in Brighton Lanes, when he sold everything that he could produce. After years of familiarity, has enabled Paul Evans to showcase nature in all his glory, but it is his innate skill, that allows him to incorporate the sounds, smells and atmosphere of one specific moment which are most impressive. Paul is know as one of the leading landscape painters working today, and is widely known for his highly individual watercolours, acrylics and etchings inspired by East Anglia’s landscape and coast, Sussex Downland, the Kent Weald, Cornwall’s rugged coast and moorland. He moved to Long Melford, Suffolk in 1991, as the owner of Lavenham Contemporary Gallery, 70-71 High Street. He is constantly experimenting with techniques and materials, finding new ways to reflect the changing light and seasons in his work and since 1976 has had some sixty-five solo exhibitions which were attended by large numbers of collectors, sometimes selling all his paintings, he has also had numerous successful group shows. Many of his images have been used for greetings cards, calendars and limited edition prints used by several large publishers such as Aquarelle, Kingsmead Publications, Royle Publications and Royal Doulton. His work has been purchased by collectors worldwide including America, Japan, Australia and Europe.
