Real name Paul Jackson. I was born in Kenya in 1954. My dad worked for the colonial civil service and we lived all over Kenya. One of my earliest memories is seeing elephants from my bedroom window at the age of 4 and hearing my mother beating a copper tray as the elephants rubbed up against the wooden house one night. Often we lived in places without electricity

I went to school in Kenya (Tigoni Primary school ?Duke of York/Lenana and Coldhams)

I left Kenya at 18 to go to art school in the UK (West Surrey College of Art and Design, WSCAD Farnham) and combined my life as an artist with a working life in the civil service normally on projects to do with employment /training and education for minority ethnic pupils at school in England. . I took early retirement 2005 and I am working as a gardener and on my art.

In April 2012 we lost our wonderful daughter Rachael in a road traffic accident. She had just qualified as a vet the year before and was just embarking upon a wonderful life. We are still reeling.

    "His art is nice
    And does entice.
    But in an age of insanity,
    To be an emissary for humanity …
    Now, THAT's Art."

    A grave oversight!"

    "Here you are in the presence of a true artist. In an age where it is so easy to manipulate photographs and call it "digital art" Paul's work stands out as the real thing. Real art, always surprising, original, refreshing- a constant inspiration. Surreal collages, altered books, superb watercolours and oil paintings done not from photographs but 'on location', and an amazing collection of original old photographs. Most of all though it is the quality of the conversation that makes Paul's one of the most entertaining photo-streams on flickr. His sense of humour and his courtesy in acknowledging and replying to comments make you feel like a guest at a private party hosted by the artist."

    "ART NAHPRO is one of the very rare artists who brings together in his art our collective history, through his use of imagery... whether it be famous paintings or popular culture, famous people dead and alive or movies stills, etc... These very eclectic combinations and juxtapositions speak volumns, yet speak to each of us in a very personal way. Thank you for being you!"

    "As talented as he is generous. His pictures piece together imagination and reality and lead you see things in a new dimension. Whether it's his delicate ethereal paintings or a collection of imagines long ago he speaks in a language worth learning. If poetry is bread for the soul then ART NAHPRO is a feast for the eyes."
