Artist - Paul Kennedy

Twelve years after leaving Edinburgh College of Art Paul Kennedy is now well established in his studio in the Merchant City. To date much of his work has been inspired by the city, depicting a narrative between the people and their surroundings, His paintings are strongly connected to his own life and experience but also the lifes of the strangers he encounters on a daily basis.

Paul has delivered many solo exhibitions and achieved awards such as the RGI Kelly Gallery award, The David Cargill award and was a finalist in the 2010 Aspect Prize.

‘We all have these histories which one day will be lost. I bring together drawings and photographs to create paintings that depict a narrative of the interaction people have with their surroundings.
My studio based on the edge of the city centre gives me the perfect environment to reflect this kaleidoscope of memory and place, helping me to capture a very distinct energy’.
