One of the most significant British Abstract Expressionist artists of the twentieth century, Paul Huxley is known for his large-scale paintings, which combine experimental perspective with linear lines, distorted geometry with dynamic illusion.

Born in London in 1938, Huxley’s career reads like a who’s who of twentieth-century art-world import. Graduating from both Harrow School of Art and The Royal Academy, Huxley went on to mentor many now-established artists including Dino Chapman, Nigel Cook, Dexter Dalwood, Andrew Grassie, Tracey Emin, Chantal Joffe and Chris Ofili.

The recipient of Peter Stuyvesant Travel Award and a Harkness Fellowship, Huxley spent the blossoming years of American Abstract Expressionism at the very hub of artistic creation: New York City. Mixing with the likes of Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner and Jasper Johns, Huxley began to develop his own, distinctly British take on the mid-century movement, starting work on what would come to be known as his ‘Key Series’.

The last five decades have seen Huxley involved in numerous group and solo exhibitions, while noteworthy commissions have included: sets and costumes for the Rambert Dance Company (1991), wall drawings for the entrances to Pallant House Gallery, Chichester (2001), Charing Cross Hospital, London (2011), and a room in the Azerbaijan International Pavilion for the Venice Biiennale (2015).

Today, Huxley lives in West London where he shares a studio complex with Peter Blake and Ben Johnson.
