Hi I’m Paul West and I’m happy to be this Tuesday’s #TOAFtakover artist. I’ll be showing some of my work and how I made some of them, my studio, and my stand at The Other Art Fair.

My Studio! It’s my world where I can paint, draw & listen to my old cassette mixtapes and keep it analogue.

At the same time the Silent Voices etchings were in production, I worked with Hippo Screenprinters screen printing messages on leaves (with water based non toxic ink) and distributed them anonymously around public spaces. I loved the idea that one in a hundred might be seen.

I also have a selection of charcoal landscapes and nudes I like to draw in between the painting and print work.
