| Paul Catherall
Paul Catherall is a London-based illustrator and printmaker who uses the lino technique to create impressive geometric prints of iconic architecture and structures. His signature style consists of simplified versions of landmarks with two or three tones on the structure set against a flat, bold colour background. He works with the adage ‘less is more’ and describes his work as a pared down homage to the classic mid 20th Century poster designs.
Paul was first attracted to linocut printmaking whilst studying for his degree in illustration. He enjoys the methodical, step-by-step process of lino printing and is mainly self-taught. The simplistic use of colour and form construction are the key elements to Paul's prints, from strong light falling on concrete buildings to dramatic silhouettes of the city. He is inspired by London’s fascinating and diverse range of architecture and landmarks, and this is the subject matter for most of his prints.
