I have worked with several cancer charities, both as an Artist and as a Creative Director. This is the second time I have worked with a charity which focuses on women with breast cancer, which is something close to my heart.
In summer 2014 I was introduced to the eclectic and luxuriously opulent private members club, Home House. The grandeur of the building blew me away. Art adorned the walls of each completely unique room, ranging in styles from 18th century splendour to 21st century avant-garde.

I recently submitted a proposal through Talent House to create a Pink Bear artwork for the new Moxy Ostbahnhof Hotel as part of their brand launch. My proposal was accepted and is now hanging pride of place in their lobby.
Rising UK artist and our very own Talenthouse Artist, Paul Robinson aka LUAP has continued to find artistic success with his signature pink bear. Since our last interview with him over a year ago, Robinson's career has risen leaps and bounds, from small exhibits to collaborating with TV stars and showcasing his work in the Andipa Gallery in London. A huge milestone for any artist. Robinson took some time out of his busy schedule to let us know more about his new exhibit “The Hero’s Journey” at Andipa (open until August 6th, go check it out), his future plans and advice for artists trying to get their work into galleries.
In his debut solo exhibition with Andipa Gallery titled ‘A Hero’s Journey’, New Contemporary artist Paul Robinson produces a vivid collection of paintings, photography and unique prints telling the fantastical story of alter ego Pink Bear.
"The most pertinent painting is one I created in 2015 called “Me & My Shadow”. The painting is about being lost in the abyss of ones mind, travelling down a seemingly endless road, only accompanied by your shadow which is representative of the unconscious, which can include both positives and negative aspects of the ego"
Pink Bear is getting his own show. The Andipa Gallery in Knightsbridge - which is well known for it’s huge collection of Banksy’s - will be showing a curated collection of my paintings, prints and photography in July.
A 6am start & the team of 53 was pumped & raring to go...Vanessa Von Tain arrived fresh as a daisy in her Rock 'N' Roll outfit. Louise Thompson in her rose gold tipped trainers. We all scrambled into Starbucks for a caffeine fix, before turning it into a makeshift beauty salon. We then moved to Sketch.
Myself and The Pink Bear were invited along to a music video shoot earlier this year by Sophia Kerrison (Cara Delevingne's best mate). On arriving we were transported down the rabbit hole into a decadent masked filled world. The bear was home.
"Painting murals since the young age of 9, Talenthouse artist Paul Robinson has found success through the use of a pink bear in his artwork. Born in 1982 Grimsby, England, Robinson is inspired by his childhood and artists like David La Chappelle and Jeff Koons. His artistic name LUAP derives from a personalized book he received as a kid in where he needed to defeat a monster by solving a riddle. The answer to the riddle happened to be his name spelled backwards and has stuck ever since. Now in London, Robinson has had his work admired by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Japanese hotspot Ramusake, luxury London hotel Belgraves and more. We asked him about his bear icon, inspirations and his creative outlets to give us more insights into his artistic mind."
Supermodel Cara Delevingne and her best friend Sophia Kerrison teamed up with Talenthouse to celebrate #Art4Animals, a new art-themed campaign which celebrates the joy that animals bring and the importance of having them in our lives.
