Paul Digby was born in Armagh in 1979 and began creating art from an early age.
Paul received the highest grade in Art and Design in Northern Ireland in his ‘A’ Level year. He went on to complete a degree in Visual Communication and Illustration at the University of Ulster Art College, York Street, Belfast.
Paul works predominantly in the medium of oil painting, but is also an accomplished illustrator.
He has exhibited work throughout Ireland, the UK and New York.
In Paul’s work he reimagines each piece and uses an unexpected and provocative blend of shapes and colours to carve out the contours and individual features to challenge the viewer.
He deconstructs the conventional idea of a portrait and then reassembles the piece to create his own contemporary style and a body of work which engages with the modern art lover.
