Paul Garland has an intense love of colour which is reflected in both his Illustration and Fine Art practices.
Paul's Illustration work is conceptual, bold, often witty and always graphic, giving an alternative view to the everyday perspective on life.  Working for major clients worldwide in Advertising, Design, Editorial and Publishing his work has been recognised with over 50 Awards to date in his career. 
Paul is currently represented in North America by Rapp Art.                                                                         
Paul's fine art practice is a place for him to 'let go' when time permits away from illustration.  A place to relax within a therapeutic mindset and is slowly becoming more abstract.  Paul prides himself in working completely by hand when painting, no digital devices and no use of tapes for masking which leaves room for human error and a feeling of primacy.

Paul is a wonderful, warm individual who ties his head, heart, and hand in developing strong concepts that stop and engage the viewer. And his color palette is the icing on the cake. - Charles Hively, 3x3, The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration
Paul’s second-best asset is his look. His best asset is his voice, bringing thoughtful skepticism to the whole of human behavior without ever tipping over into blanket cynicism (which is a tough line to walk). - Matt Dorfman, Art Director, New York Times Book Review
Paul Garland is a pro from the beginning until the delivery of the final illo. He has interesting concepts, is very easy to work with, and fully accessible from sketches to the final. - Alice Cheung, Art Director, The Wall Street Journal, Saturday Review
I have been an admirer of Paul Garland's work from when he was represented by Morgan Gaynin. His bold, graphic, and smart concept illustrations make him one of the industry's top editorial artists. I was reminded of his work when I saw his portfolio on The I Spot, and when I realized he was no longer represented, I took a chance and asked if he would consider representation through Rapp Art. I was thrilled when he accepted our offer. Great editorial illustration begins and ends with smart conceptual thinking. An interesting, compelling style can only go so far without the big idea. Paul begins each project with multiple ideas, any one of which could make a great final illustration. Once the client selects their favorite, Paul creates the final art and another happy customer. That's why the most respected publications in the world have Paul on their shortlist for their next assignment. - Tim Mendola President, Rapp Art
