TOAF takeover

#TOAFtakeover : Paul West

Welcome to #TOAFtakeover, an Instagram series that gives you an insight into the work and life of our artists.


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.


My Silent Voices Limited Edition etching series printed at Hippo Screenprinters and available on my profile on Saatchi Art.


Preparing an inked etching plate before taking a print for my Silent Voices Etching Series.


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.


My final upload for today, preparations for The Other Art Fair show (Oct 6-9) which was a fantastic experience, and good to meet all The Other Art Fair team! Thanks all.
