Bringing Characters to Life
A turning point in Paul Hortons artwork came about after visiting a puppet theatre in the 80's that was closing down. He gained access to the store room as was drawn to the characters and the folklore found in this lost world. These characters have been brought to life in his artwork where they are released of their strings, gain their own personalities and develop into something new.
