Paul Kessling trained as a sculptor under the tutelage of Sir Eduardo Paolozzi at the Royal College of Art. After winning a traveling scholarship scholarship to study the Easter Island Statues his career took an unexpected swerve. With little room for materials he purchased some bottles of French ink and so began his journey as a painter, a medium he has been exploring ever since, developing how he sees and engages with the natural world.
Kessling now creates paintings using
the same sculptural discipline required of the three dimensional form, but in a
two dimensional space.
