Paul Bennett Review by Geoffrey Chatten
"In creating exceptionally stunning semi-abstract seascape paintings, artist Paul Bennett irrefutably warrants reference to any literature about seascape artists and paintings. The international recognised British artist is particularly renowned for creating seascapes that are influenced from Britain’s lesser known and more isolated stretches of coastline. Part of the beauty of seascape paintings is that they explore isolation and leave the subject open to interpretation, which Bennett achieves by focusing on Britain’s remote and secluded shores. Based in London this highly esteemed contemporary artist has a strong online presence and is much-admired within this highly expressive and elusive subject of painting. "

Featured in this Saturday’s Edition of The Times!I’ve been included in an article, in the Times, titled “Beat Volatility by Avoiding the Stock Market”, where Mark Bridge explores investment in art and design. I’m under the sub-heading “Emerging Art Talent”. Below is the art work “Rise 1″ that has been mentioned in the article.
The article suggests that it is wise to invest in “items that are likely to hold or increase in value, but will also provide an alternative dividend by being useful or decorative whatever happens to the main stream money markets”. Sarah Ryan, founder of New Blood Art, recommended my work and described it as “the perfect brooding landscape”.
