Born in 1976 in West Bengal. Paul has been working with paint and charcoal for nearly two decades now commanding a mastery and finesse that very few can claim. The subtle distinction of male and female relationship is perfectly depicted in his paintings; his works bring out the drama of black and white by introducing solid blocks of paint, which are restricted to reds, yellows and orange. The contrast sets the mood of the work, highlighting the character that he paints. His skillful rendering of the female form shows an innate understanding and mastery of the subject.
