Paul Vanstone

Paul Vanstone transforms and adapts blocks of marble into a range of exceptional sculptures, portraying the subtle curves of the human body or the delicacy and flow of folding cloth. Paul uses the hardness and light reflecting qualities of the marble to search for purity, light and beauty within each of his works. Playing with scale, texture and traditional carving techniques, Paul’s sculptures are stylised with a contemporary and unadorned simplicity. By reducing and refining his medium, these sculptures highlight Paul’s ability to create works that range from the intimate to the monumental.

Paul Vanstone trained in sculpture at Central & St Martin’s School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He was awarded the Darwin Scholarship in 1990, the Royal Academy of Art Travel Scholarship in 1992 and the Henry Moore Award in 1991 and 1992. Following his graduation, Paul worked in Italy at the traditional marble carving studios near the famous Carrara quarries. On his return to the UK, Paul became an assistant to leading British sculptor, Anish Kapoor, for five years. He has exhibited at a number of major galleries & sculpture gardens in the UK including the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Chelsea Flower show. Paul works in his studio in West London.
