PAUL GILBERT

Paul Gilbert is essentially a painter of his environment. He has a special admiration for nature and its different shapes, forms, and colors and, in his vibrant acrylic paintings, gives special attention to light and shadows.  Paul studied fine arts at the School of Art and Design and studied art education in the School of Education and Community Studies at the Seychelles Polythechnic.

His paintings are based on the Creole way of life. They include scenes of Creole houses, fishermen, beaches, traditional dances, (sega, Moutia) seascapes and landscapes. Paul's works are exhibited and sold at the International Airport, Bazar Labrin and in the Eden Art Space Gallery.

 

Paul began his career as an Art Teacher at Secondary level. After four years he become a School Counselor, however, he never stopped drawing and painting. In 2008 Paul made a key career change and became a freelance artist. He held his first solo exhibition in 2008 and since then has participated in numerous group shows. His work is enthusiastically collected at home and abroad.
