Paul Oz

Dynamic and explosive, Paul Oz’s remarkable and unique portraits celebrating popular culture and sport have led to him becoming a seminal name on the British art scene. 

His extraordinary canvases are huge, and often have to support up to 2cm depth of oil paint, giving a deeply textured three-dimensional effect.

Paul has travelled the world recording the flamboyance and passion of the F1 circuit, with clients including Lamborghini, Team Sky, Instituto Ayrton Senna, Red Bull, Monster Energy and Pirelli.

He has also been commissioned to paint Bruno Mars to mark his 24k Magic World tour, by Sir Bradley Wiggins to celebrate his famous victory at the 2012 Olympics, by Star Trek to mark the franchise’s 50th anniversary, and by the families of late stars Ayrton Senna, James Hunt and Bruce Lee. 

His collectors include Jenson Button, Sir Alex Ferguson, hip hop/grime artist Wretch 32 and Theo Paphitis.

Not bad for an untrained artist who started painting 10 years ago at weekends to give himself a break from the day job as a software brand developer.

Paul is a proud supporter of various charities, including Great Ormond Street Hospital and It’s In the Bag, the testicular cancer charity of which he became patron after a close friend survived the disease.

Paul admits that he is not a ‘textbook artist’, but that: “My entire aim is for visual impact, to capture characters in a unique way that blows your socks off and to elicit a response something along the lines of ‘woooohhhhaaa!’”
