Paul P. (born 1977) is a Canadian artist known primarily for his work as an oil painter. He explores topics including identity, beauty, gender and history.

Work[edit]

Paul P.'s early work was drawn from 70's pre-AIDS era gay pornography.[1] His current work is done in the studio from the artist's photographs. His detachment from the original location while producing the work invokes a sensual longing for what is not captured in the photo. The nuances of light are his primary concern and his work is usually informed by history.[2] He has also expressed an interest in design through his installation at the 2014 Whitney Biennal incorporating his unique "Writing Table for Nancy Mitford" into the exhibition space.[3] He is represented internationally.
