Ken Paine PS PVPPSV 

SocIeties:

Ken Paine was born in Lambeth in 1926. Although he received very little formal education in art, (other than a brief spell at Twickenham Art College) he was addicted to drawing from early childhood and has since dedicated his life to painting.    

He is a longstanding member of the Pastel Society and in 1989 was awarded the coveted title of Master Pastelliste by the Societé des Pastellistes Internationale et de France, something rarely awarded to an Englishman. He went on to become Vice President of that society.

His work has been recognised worldwide and he has had many solo exhibitions both in this country and abroad. One notable exhibition was held at The Holbourne Museum in Bath in 1999. More recently, he had a solo exhibition at the Frost & Reed gallery, Cork Street and at L’Abbaye de Flaran in 2010, a national museum near Toulouse in France. A self portrait continues to hang in that museum in 2013 as part of La Collection Simonow.

A film was made of his life and work entitled Ken Paine - Painting Faces, in which he was shown painting the actor Joss Ackland. This film was shown on Sky Arts several times over a number of years.

A book was published entitled Ken Paine - his life and work by Michael Simonow in 1987 and another publication will be available from the beginning of 2014 entitled Ken Paine - Nowhere to Hide by Penelope Lee.

“There is nothing contrived or commercial about Ken Paine’s work. He is a visually articulate artist who at one glance can unlock the hidden emotions of his sitters and translate his impressions on to canvas with a sensitivity that creates an almost spiritual effect.”  Michael Simonow
