PAUL KARSLAKE


Even before he won his first County Art Prize at the age of eight, Paul was immersed into the Art World. Paul's father, Mike, was a renowned architectural model maker. After College, Paul joined his father in his business and assisted on many famous architectural projects such as the Grade 2 building Centre Point, the Thames Flood Barrier and working models for the Concorde pilot seat.
 

Paul travelled to the States for what he imagined would be a three week holiday. He stayed four years! Soon after arriving in America, Paul was working for Los Angeles Art Studios, CBS Television and Disney with whom, years later, he was to work on the EuroDisney Project.
 

In the 90's, Paul was commissioned by the Wiggins Group to produce a 650 ft long artwork hoarding for their South Quay site in London Docklands for which he was awarded The Evening Standard Environmental Award. In the same year Paul was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (F.R.S.A.) Under the guidance of Derek Johns, ex Director of Sotheby's, Paul decided to further strengthen his ties with the fine art market. In 1995 he undertook a commission for some very large still life paintings for the restaurant that became Gordon Ramsay's Petrus in London's St. James.
 

Amongst other projects there have been commissions for the Turf Club, NABIM, Mohamed Al Fayed, Keith Richards, Brian May and Yeardley Smith (the Voice of Lisa Simpson). Paul's depth of talent is further exemplified when viewing his work on other mediums, including design and artwork for the Virgin F1 racing cars and monumental scale commissions on commercial aircraft, coaches and even the Radio 1 roadshow trucks.


His paintings of iconic and popular figures, from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Johnny Depp, Sir Michael Caine and Grace Kelly are hanging in the homes of the famous and infamous and form part of many corporate and private collections in the UK and around the world.

Paul is passionate about sharing and explaining his skills. He takes an active part in supporting children wishing to do work experience, tutors at schools, and demonstrates at Art Groups. In 2005 The Karslake Centre for Art opened at The Cornelius Vermuyden School and Arts College, Essex.
 

Apart from being a working artist, Paul has always been a life long petrol head and has a collection of vintage Lambrettas. In 2012 he bought a Bentley Mulsanne S and covered it in artwork depicting the British Empire to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. He is also a bass guitarist and singer and enjoys playing with his band.
