Nathan Paddison

Australia, 1983

Painting with an explosive energy and ability, Australian artist Nathan Paddison approaches each canvas with a sense of urgency and physicality.

Paddison works with acrylic, spray paint, charcoal and oil, as if something vital within him yearns to express itself without fear or restraint. The result is original and gestural. His work focuses on a innovative representation of children’s images; cats with big, menacing eyes, sharp-toothed T-Rex dinosaurs and caricatures of kings and queens from the poker deck.  Since the beginning of his career, his raw and humorous style has received extremely positive reviews, such that Nathan Paddison is now one of the most demanded emerging contemporary painters in the world.
