Paul transforms a two dimensional work of art into a three dimensional one. Paul’s pioneering tributes to some of his favourite elements of popular culture are in great demand internationally and are held in many collections and public institutions. He has lived in Germany since 1987, and in 2006, the German government acquired the work ‘Berlin’ . He has exhibited in the Museum Abtei Liesborn (Warendorf, NRW) and in the world famous7-star Dubai hotel Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
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.
