Ars longa, vita brevis.

Hi, I’m Paul. I was born in Lyon, France. I have been drawing as far as I remember.

Seduced by the intricate worlds created by H.R. Giger, John Blanche and Clive Barker -among many others- I decided that I, too, wanted to become an illustrator and never turned back on the decision.

After a few twists and turns I graduated in 2017 from the University of the Arts Helsinki with a Masters degree in Painting.

At the same time I have been expanding my digital skills through self-study, using online platforms such as Schoolism and Pluralsight in order to solidify my skills in concept art and visual development.

If I’m not drawing, I’m either behind synthesizers or telling my son to wear some pants.

Do you have a project that needs fresh input and craftsmanship? I would love to hear about it.
