Paul Newland was born and educated in London’s north-western suburbs and went on to the Slade. He taught and painted, in London and the country, beginning to use watercolour in order to document street scenes and clubs in the mid-1970s. His use of the medium was consolidated during a stay in Rome, 1975-76 and his subsequent one-man shows were predominantly of watercolours.
The mysteries of still-life have fascinated him. Cityscape, usually that of non-tourist London where he has lived most of his life, and landscape - that of East Sussex and Ceredigion – have also engaged his attention. Paul also taught Art History for some years at Roehampton University.
