Paris Portrait
Paris rose to global fame in 2011 when he worked alongside the British rock band Coldplay creating a massive piece of spray can art for the cover of their 5th Studio Album Mylo Xyloto, (and subsequent world tours).
He regularly participates in British Music events most recently creating work for the public and private areas at Glastonbury Festival 2016.
His work can easily be identified, with its unique combination of atmospheric colours, detailed and highly stylised line work and space age effects.
In recent years, Paris has explored the potential of watercolour, pen and ink. This new method of working has brought together elements of his abstract graffiti and his love of graphic art onto paper. Using similar techniques, Paris then created a series of British wild mushrooms, reminiscent of Victorian botanical studies. In collaboration with interiors brand 17 Patterns, these vibrant ‘Shroom’ interpretations have now been developed into a high-end wallpaper and soft furnishings collection
Paris was the first Artist to show in the Kobi & Teal gallery space. UNIVERSAL MAGNETIC gave an insight into the three main areas in Paris’ work, presenting a selection from each. You can see a selection of Paris' work available to buy here.
