Born in Limnos Greece , Paul immigrated to Australia in  1957 and m  1968 commenced   studies   in painting and drawing under John Brack and Lenton Parr at the National Gallery  
School
, graduating in 1971.

Since then he has worked
consistently and exibited
regularly in Melbourne
and overseas.

Paul feels an affinity with the European expressive tradition from Cezanne through to the early modernists, where the exterior world is transformed through an evolving pictorial language subject to the imagination of the artist. Primarily, his images are sourced from the micro cosmos of the world around him

For Paul drawing is very important as an aspect of image making which connects him immediately with what he sees. Under each painting is a detailed drawing done on location because this is a way of developing a pictorial structure which is then consolidated and expanded on in the paintings.

The recent work is of the landscape in Lyslerneld, not far from where Paul lives so he was able to visit and study it regularly Much of the paintings are from the same spot on a hill overlooking the valley. The challenge was to integrate the multitude of detail into a coherent pictorial structure, where each form and plain has been accorded its appropriate role in the play of rhythms that weave across the picture. The sense of subliminal order that is perceived as underlying the landscape and manifesting its presence is something that he wanted to translate into the pictures. To have within them, in a pictorial way, the harmony and reality reflected in nature. Although the pictures end up looking abstracted, they have a direct visual reference.
