Paul Reynolds

Paul Reynolds life began in the United Kingdom. He now lives in the hinterland on Queensland's Sunshine Coast near Cooroy. In the early 70's he attended art school in Canberra and held a successful solo exhibition. After rebelling and dropping out of art school, he became a self-employed truck driver, a nurseryman and finally a sign writer.

Reynolds' work tends toward social and political commentary. His techniques are well practiced and experimental using many different mediums, however, he loves nothing more now to paint predominantly with oils and pastels.

Reynolds' inspiration comes from all over; it could be a sensational local news story, a hanging of a young girl in Iran or the "untouchables" in India. More often the inspiration is from real life encounters that he has experienced in his own life.
