Paul P. (born 1977) is a Canadian artist known primarily for his work as an oil painter. He explores topics including identity, beauty, gender and history. His current work is done in the studio from the artist's photographs. His detachment from the original location while producing the work invokes a sensual longing for what is not captured in the photo. The nuances of light are his primary concern and his work is usually informed by history.He has also expressed an interest in design through his installation at the 2014 Whitney Biennal incorporating his unique "Writing Table for Nancy Mitford" into the exhibition space. He is represented internationally.
