Paul Robinson, known professionally as LUAP is a British contemporary artist. A skilled fine artist who dynamically fuses painting and photography, LUAP is fast gaining critical recognition and a celebrity following for his exciting work.

 

Working across various mediums his work hints at abstract expressionism infused with the explosive energy and bold colour of Pop and Urban Art. Exploring existential subjects within a contemporary feel his work stands alone in its composition and provoking content and subject matter.

 

His most iconic series depicts a pink teddy bear come-to-life and placed in the real world acting as a metaphor for discovery and exploration. The costumed figure – a striking motif in his work – exists between reality and make-believe, youthful innocence and corruption, leading a lifestyle that looks simultaneously enviable and questionable. 

 

"I wanted to create a unique edition using a process that is as close as possible to how I approach my large canvases in the studio. Over a period of several months I painted 30 layers of background colours using small brushes to carefully control the size and formation of the spattering. Each colour I applied had be completely dry before a new layer could be painted so that they didn't run into each other, keeping the painted marks crisp and the colours bold."

 

PINK BEAR

Exploring existential subjects within a contemporary narrative his work stands alone in its composition and provoking content and subject matter. LUAP’s most iconic series depicts a Pink Bear come-to-life and is placed in the real world acting as a metaphor for discovery and exploration. The costumed figure – a striking motif in his work – exists between reality and make-believe, youthful innocence and adult corruption, leading a lifestyle that looks simultaneously enviable and questionable.
