About

Renowned artist Paul Shipper is a traditionally trained digital illustrator known for producing long-lasting imagery for film, entertainment and advertising properties.
Inspired from a very young age by the one sheets in the cinema lobby and the posters he pinned to his bedroom wall, Paul fell in love with the craft and beauty of the illustrated film poster. Since the mid- 90's he has been devoted to creating art that embodies that very aesthetic on a self proclaimed mission to bring the beloved 'old school' illustrated movie poster he grew up with back to the cinema... and beyond
While remaining constant to his 'retro' vision today, Paul's work has a modern appeal which proves fruitful for his growing client base. Embracing digital painting with his traditional art background is just one example of his ability to utilise the latest tools and delivery methods while staying true to the traditional style he holds so close to his heart.

Paul's illustrations have been appreciated and praised by some fine members of the film industry, including J.J. Abrams, Frank Darabont, Bob Gale, Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski's.

Recently one of Paul's illustrated posters was awarded Silver at the prestigious Key Art Awards.
Original art and prints of his work have been displayed in galleries in around the world. Prints are available direct from our gallery partner HCG and the PS STUDIO online shop
