Paul Hannon is a London-based painter and printmaker.
He abandoned a career in financial journalism to pursue a life-long desire to create, rather than to report, and has been exploring the possibilities of painting, woodcuts and linocuts.
Paul’s aim has been to pare away conventional motifs and focus on the barest elements. Horizons are optional, perspective is an unnecessary convention, and all we are left with is a sense of nature in its purest form.
Recent works include a linocut series created to celebrate the Tokyo Olympics and to try to capture the intensity of effort the athletes used to secure victory.
His work is held in private collections in Germany, Ireland and the UK.
