 Paul Town European Trilogy

PAUL COMES TO TOWN

Paul Town Stadium Artist is coming to East End Park on Saturday 6th November as Dunfermline take on Greenock Morton on to unveil a new trilogy of paintings telling the story of the Pars greatest European ties.
(The exhibition was originally scheduled for 2020 just as the pandemic hit the world, this is the first opportunity we have had to reschedule since the restrictions eased)

The original artworks (kindly loaned back for the day by their new owners) will be on display in the Purvis Suite, with a public viewing available between 10.30am-11.30. (11.45 till 12 noon for those attending hospitality) Jim Leishman will also have Paul up to discuss the pieces with our guests in hospitality

Paul is no stranger to East End Park. It’s only 5 years ago that the Bradford born stadium artist visited Dunfermline to present a portrait to the club commissioned by Pars fanatic Kenny Mitchell. This enabled Paul to build up a reputation for his work amongst Pars supporters bringing more commissions to paint our lovable ground from various angles over a selection of decades. He has also helped the club by producing several pieces which have been auctioned to raise funds

Paul’s fascination with football stadiums dates back almost 40 years when he first read the football grounds book written by Simon Ingles. A few years on Paul’s life took a twist he’d rather forget, however the experiences of escaping the Valley Parade Fire disaster alongside his dad Barry, left emotional scars which are embedded within to this day.

Paul said “ I’ve struggled to come to terms with what happened nearly 35 years ago. Yes me and dad we’re lucky to escape within seconds of something more serious, but seeing what I saw as a naive teenager will live with me forever. In later life I needed an hobby to take my mind off things as I’d become unwell. I turned to Art as I’d always been interested in the subject quite passionately. My parents had gifted me a set of artists paints for Christmas so the most natural thing for me to paint was a football stadium”


Through social media outlets orders and commissioned from all parts of the uk started to flood in, so much so Paul broke away from his job in Construction to become a full-time artist just 3 years later. Paul’s early works were talked about with great similarities to LS Lowry as they had a real northern flavour in both content and colour. Paul is a product of his early life and upbringing working within and around the cities of his industrial homeland.

“The perfect stadium portrait for me is when I can bring the external landscape into view. If I can paint a mill or a chimney in the distance it gives me so much more pleasure as it reminds me of my youth”

Paul’s unique story and skills have seen him gain a valuable client list on a global scale with his original oils hanging in homes in USA, Australia, the Middle East and of course the European Continent. However Paul has a huge interest in Scottish football history

I'm fortunate to have the painting of the 6-2 against Valencia. It's my son's painting and I have it on the wall above his former bed. It will be nice to see the 2 other paintings of the Trilogy.

Crunching tackle from Roy Barry who distributes the ball to Harry Melrose. He takes the ball rapidly up the flank before passing to inside forward Bertie Paton. He beats three defenders before sliding it past the keeper.....

Probably my three top Pars of all time.

Worth getting for the autographs alone.

You can source clip art frames for a very few pounds and fit them yourself, I’m sure there will be plenty of other frames you can use to complete the job

If they are A3 size, Ebay is a great place to buy frames of that size. If you want a better quality then go to a framer.

Nice article in last nights programme publicising the Art Exhibition on 6th November 10.30 till 11.30

I have contacted most of those who had an order placed originally and although a few have understandably cancelled (circumstances change over 18 months) many have now paid for their orders

The prints have now all been signed by Roy Barry, Harry Melrose and Bert Paton as well as the Artist

There are still a few sets that can be purchased ahead of the Exhibition just drop me an email

I hope that there is a good turnout to come along and see the originals and another couple of pieces which will be for sale on the day
