Paul Curtis is an Liverpool-based artist specialising in street art and large murals. In the 3 years he has been active as an artist, he has created more than 150 public pieces, largely in Liverpool and Wirral, but also in locations across the UK.
Paul came prominence with his very first piece of street art, "For All Liverpool's Liver Birds" (aka "The Liver Bird Wings"). This piece was an instant success with queues of people eager to have the picture taken with the wings eventually leading to partial closure of the road. The piece has since become part of Liverpool's fabric with tourists making trips to Jamaica St with the sole aim of seeing the mural. Many famous people have had there picture there including HRH Camilla Parker-Bowles, Jamie Carragher, Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Bianca Walkden. In 2018, the mural was the 19th most geotagged place in the UK, nestled between Stone Henge and Abbey Road on the list.
Paul is in high demand as he is able to paint in any style and his work is noted for accuracy, detail and very high standard. His prolific, hard-working, professional attitude is something that clients greatly appreciate.
Some of his notable pieces include:
The Abbey Road Mural
The Baltic Market Beatles
John Lennon Mural
Audrey Hepburn Mural
Michael Jackson Moonwalker
Evolution of Man
Numerous Tranmere Rovers pieces
Other things of note include Paul working with Danny Boyle doing the artwork on the 2019 film, Yesterday. He was also included in the list of the top 20 people who make Merseyside happy.
Paul's work goes from strength to strength. The future will be exciting for him as he embarks on more and more high profile pieces and ever larger scales.
Paul wasn't always an artist, it was a redundancy in 2015 and an extended period of unemployment that led to him picking up his brushes. He was a geologist in the oil industry for 15 years and holds an MSC in Petroleum Geoscience at the University of Aberdeen in 2001 and a BSc in Geology and Physical Geography for the University of Liverpool. He swopped oil for oils.
