Paul Thierry Biography


Paul Thierry’s distinctive, brightly coloured images
juxtapose sleek and stylish subjects with a gritty urban backdrop where
graffiti provides a stark contrast to the high end brands or iconic characters.
His unusual technique and presentation give his large scale works a unique
intensity and effect. Each one is created as a monotype, a long established
technique which he has developed in his studio and transformed from a
traditional method into something dynamic and avant-garde. To create his single
impression Paul paints a motif on a glass or acrylic plate. He then prints the
motif onto canvas creating a monotype which can be clearly identified as such,
as any further impressions would lose the intensity of colour and clarity.

 

Paul Thierry places the glass plate over the print and
manipulates the image by moving the paint while it is still wet, after which he
hand paints further elements to add nuance and expression. He then adds a whole
new level of impact with an innovative presentation, mounting the glass and the
canvas a few centimetres apart. This allows light and space to influence both
the colours and the graphic structures, so when the two are superimposed, a
complex image emerges.
