Paul Kindersley (b. 1985, Cambridge, UK), graduated from Cambridge Regional College, before studying Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art & Design. Abundant in their otherworldly unfolding, Paul’s work takes up the mantel left by whimsical intellectuals, such as the Bloomsbury Group. Brought to life through drawing and performance, stage/script and video/film, Paul creates paracosm-like realities filled with absurdity, chance, and lashings of kitsch.
