About PF Bennett

After a successful career in advertising and commercial graphic design, Paul Bennett is now doing what he loves. Growing up in the North West of England during the 50s and 60s, music played a great part in his life and the songs of that period form the basis of most of his paintings.They are essentially a visual depiction of the song set in the locale and the era of his youth. The imagery is mostly monochrome, but always with a small splash of colour, they perfectly capture the soundtrack to many of our lives.

Artist Statement:

'I studied Art & Design at Salford School of Art. I happened to notice an old man with white hair in aSalford gallery one day... L. S. Lowry;chatted to me and I got his autograph that I still treasure. After leaving college I took up a position in a Manchester advertising agency making the tea, working my way up to being a studio manager before going out on my own as a illustrator/designer in the city. I

n 2015 I saw the three Cunard Queens sail up the Mersey, and that inspired me to paint for the sheer love of it all over again as I had as a youngster. This started me on a journey that has ended up with me becoming what I consider to be an artist of the ’Northern School.’ Growing up in the 50's & 60's, music played a great part in my life, and now with that era's music playing in my studio I base most of my paintings on the songs of that period that I loved... I try to do a visual still shot from the song whilst remembering my days of growing up in the North! Perhaps it was meeting old Mr. Lowry all those years back that has guided me to where I am today!'
