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"
"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."
