Paul Ygartua is an international artist – an original creator producing remarkable work. He is a painter and muralist with bases in Canada, France, Spain and England.
Creation and interpretation is Paul’s life. In painting he is at home in all mediums
and his production is prodigious. A qualified gold and silversmith with a degree in design Paul turned to painting immediately after graduating from the Liverpool School of Art in Great Britain.
His styles include Realism, Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism and Abstract Surrealism. His continuous study and work on techniques and painting mediums are apparent throughout his vast body of work–from his Heritage Series to his Celestialism (which shows the extent of his imagination–giving an insight to his more intimate work illustrating the workings of the mind and soul ) to his current Abstract Expressionism and Abstract Surrealism.
His most recent works provoke a response that is both physical and emotional. His application of colour and line enables Paul to capture the essence of the subject with a spontaneity unparalleled by many. His technique in colour is startling and impressive and his use of the pallet knife is bold and convincing.
His monumental murals and domed ceiling have received international acclaim and the power of his achievement is appreciated and recognized by many collectors world- wide.
He is the creator of some of the most famous images in Canada such as his Heritage Series; which are instantly recognized by most Canadians and have been a part of the British Columbia identity for decades. He is also the architect of some of the largest murals in North America and Europe His paintings are in public and private collections worldwide and are treasured for their intrinsic and real value.
