Paul Treasure (b. 1961, Gloucestershire) is a British painter known for his expressive oil paintings reflecting the natural world. Light, and the interplay between light and colour, sit at the heart of his oil paintings. Paul studied at Cheltenham College of Art before moving to London to live and work. During this time, his art gained international recognition as he was commissioned for public works of art, as well as private collections. In 1991 he embarked on a year travelling the world through Africa, India, South East Asia and Central America. Following several solo shows that led on from his travels, in 1993 Paul was commissioned as the expedition artist of the first ever crossing of the Taklamakan Desert in North West China. Together with his signature use of a palette knife, his application of colour and attention to light gives each of his paintings a tangible sense of depth. Whether reflecting chaos or calm, Paul’s paintings are unified by their ability to portray the essence of nature. Now living and working in Hampshire, the rivers and chalk streams of the Test Valley are an endless source of inspiration to him, as are the seascapes of the south coast.
