Paul Bordiss is best known for his highly individual and quirky paintings of farm and domestic animals. He is a self-taught artist first exhibiting in 1996 at the Gallery at Bevere in Worcester - now one of the area’s premier galleries. Many solo and joint shows have followed with a growing interest in his work which has been bought by at least one Head of Fine Art from Cambridge University UK. Many other private collectors have purchased his art from around the world including UK, Ireland, France, USA, Germany and New Zealand.

He is also a chimney sweep of over 20 years’ experience. He has more recently found work in the TV and film industry as an extra and actor. He has appeared in 'Game of Thrones', ‘Fair City’, ‘TG4’ – an Irish TV production crime reconstruction series, the Heineken ‘Working Together’ advert, as well as the ABC American TV series ‘Quantico’.

He also appears as a Cameraman alongside ex Pogue Cait O’Reardon in a music video by Dublin band ‘Girl Band’ - voted best Irish music video of 2015 at Cork film festival 2016 and nominated best music video at the Berlin music video awards 2016. 

Paul now lives near Westport, County Mayo, Ireland. He would love to hear from you and you can email him at paulbordiss@yahoo.com

His work is published onto place mats and greetings cards and can be found in selective outlets in the UK and Ireland. Paul believes his affinity with the animals comes from growing up on farms where his Dad worked as a stockman. Paul’s other passion is music which also features strongly as a theme in many of his paintings. A keen musician and singer, Paul will often be seen at music sessions playing guitar or his button accordion.

I am going to be having an Open Studio in County Mayo (Ireland) in the near future. Watch this space!

Paul Bordiss is best known for his quirky and individual paintings of farm and domestic animals, and often uses the tradition of folk dance as inspiration. His favourite quote is by the late American artist and teacher Robert Henri: 

“Paint what you feel, paint what you see,

paint what is real to you."
