Paul Munden is an artist specializing in printmaking, mainly serigraphs. He is also a member of the East London Printmakers, exhibiting in group shows.
Turning down several MA courses Paul chose a career as an art director and Creative Director in advertising and design. Working at top ad agencies for many UK and international brands there followed awards from D&AD, Creative Circle, Cannes and American Art Directors for TV, radio, billboards and press ads plus design for packaging and print.
This has led to a diverse style including type, photography and painterly elements. And his continual love affair with CMYK and the halftone dot from long contact with commercial processes. His images encompass a variety of interests in nostalgia, biography and controversial themes. The compositions conjure up layers of meaning, narrative or social comment, lately expressed in his ongoing ‘bioGRAPHICals’ series.
As you can imagine, his prints adorn the walls of many media companies.
He admits to catholic tastes as regards to influences. As wide ranging as Ron Kataj, Richard Hamilton and Dexter Dalwood, to Reg Mombassa. And heraldry and 18th century satirical engravings, to modern technology.
