Paul Winstanley

Paul Winstanley was born in 1954 in Manchester, England. He attended Cardiff College of Art, Cardiff before completing his training at the Slade School of Fine Art, London from 1976-78. Winstanley works within the traditional genres of landscape, interior, still life and the figure to create detailed, realistic paintings and prints of uninhabited landscapes, deserted passages, lobbies, walkways and interiors, all rendered in a muted palette.

He has been exhibiting internationally since the late 1970s. He won the first prize of the Unilever Award at the Whitechapel Open in 1989, and two years later was artist-in-residence at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge. His work featured in the Tate Gallery's Art Now series exhibition in 1997. Winstanley has had solo exhibitions in London, Paris, Munich, Hamburg, Dublin, New York, Los Angeles and in Auckland, New Zealand, where a major retrospective of his work was presented at Artspace in 2008.

His work is represented in several public and private collections, including Tate; British Council; Government Art Collection, London; European Parliament Central; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Paris Fonds National d'art Contemporain, Paris; Musee d'art Contemporain, Portugal; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and the New York Public Library.

Paul Winstanley lives and works in London.

Join us for the exclusive launch of three new prints depicting monumental stained glass windows by Paul Winstanley, inspired by his visit to a modernist church in northern Germany.

Providing an opportunity to access behind-the-scenes at the gallery, the prints will be on show in our Private Viewing Room. They will be displayed together with earlier graphic work by Winstanley featuring interiors. These include prints from his Art School series, which relate to his works currently on show at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, as part of the exhibition A Century of the Artist’s Studio: 1920 – 2020.
