Bio:

A skilled fine artist who dynamically fuses painting and photography, Paul Robinson born in Grimsby in 1982, is fast gaining critical recognition and a celebrity following for his eclectic work.

Paul searches for purpose, connection and meaning through his fantastical alter ego the ‘Pink Bear’. The costumed figure, a striking motif in his work, exists between reality and make-believe, youthful innocence and corruption, leading a lifestyle that looks simultaneously enviable and questionable.

A collection of work featuring the Pink Bear was recently exhibited in a solo show at Andipa Gallery Knightsbridge and is currently on display at exclusive London members club, Home House. The use of the colourful anti hero and the way Robinson combines digital, graphic and photographic techniques have also been acclaimed by purveyors of vanguard art ‘The Kids of Dada’ and supermodel Cara Delevingne, who owns a print.

This exciting, contemporary artist also recently sold for three times the listed price at Christie’s on behalf of the Terrence Higgins Trust, created a provocative installation at one of Berlin’s hippest hotels, The Moxy and photographed the controversial Marco Pierre White Junior for his body paint series.
