BIOGRAPHY

Paul Oxborough Biography

b. 1965

Paul G. Oxborough studied at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and Atelier Lesueur, a 4 year program that adheres to the French academic tradition. He has exhibited numerous times at both the British and Scottish National Portrait Galleries, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, as well as several other notable museums. Paul has had over a dozen solo shows and his work is included in collections world-wide.
   
Known for his bravura brushwork and his ability to capture light, Oxborough's frequent travels provide inspiration for his work, allowing him to paint a seemingly unlimited variety of subjects from intimate portraits and interiors to outdoor figures and landscapes. Currently Paul is represented by Cavalier Gallery in NYC, and Albemarle Gallery in London.
