Paul Catherall is a London-based printmaker and illustrator. From the late 1990s he has worked predominantly in linocuts. His work builds up seemingly abstract blocks of colour into perfectly balanced compositions, which unite as one representational whole. Cezanne and Sickert have been a recurrent influence on his use of colour and construction of form. He also greatly admires the progressive commercial designers of the 1920s and 1930s, particularly Edward Mcknight Kauffer and Tom Purvis.
Paul's work has featured on posters and book covers for British Airways, Marks & Spencer, Bloomsbury and Harper Collins. He lives and works in London.
