Paul Housley (b.1964, Stalybridge, UK), graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Sheffield City Polytechnic in 1986, and a MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 1995. Deep in the formalities of oil paint, Paul’s work refracts his world and those phenomena that catch his eye. Reaped from the flow of our modernity, the social lives, histories, and restive objet de désir, pictured in Paul’s paintings recall those kaleidoscopic moments captured by the poetic M.G., Baudelaire’s modernist legend.
