Paul Vanstone

Paul Vanstone studied sculpture at St. Martins School of Art before completing an MFA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art from which he graduated in 1993.

A selection of solo and group exhibitions include: Royal Geographical Society; Torsos at Terminal 5 Gallery, Heathrow Airport (2015); London Art Fair (2011). Paul has shown his work at a number of major galleries in London, including the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as galleries and sculpture gardens throughout the UK. He has gained a number of prestigious awards and commissions, among them being the Henry Moore Award (1991) and the Lady Carrington Sculpture Garden commission (1991 and 1996).

Paul Vanstone's work is focused around his love of material, particularly marble, which he admires for its hardness and light reflecting qualities. He transforms and adapts his material to depict forms such as the curves of the human body or delicacy of a covering cloth. His technique and focus upon quality and finish draw upon the traditions of modern British sculpture pioneered by Henry Moore, whilst his images and influences reflect the twenty-first century's influence of biomorphic design synonymous with architects such as Zaha Hadid.
