Deep Breaths by Katy Papineau
Katy Papineau (b.1991) is a figurative painter and art tutor who lives and works in London. Papineau filters her observations of the world through her imagination to result in an embellished depiction of ordinary life. She is concerned with themes of intimacy – the connections and disconnections between people. She works with paint that she hand mixes from dry pigment, building up areas of colour and pattern to result in a richly textured surface.
In 2019, Papineau completed The Drawing Year at The Royal Drawing School. Since graduating she has taken part in several group shows, sold her work with Liberty London, presented for Tate, appeared on Portrait Artist of The Year, and worked on regular commissions for private clients. She teaches on the Young Artists Programme at The Royal Drawing School, and online for Elephant Academy.
