Street Art: Paul’s artwork treads the conscious and the unconscious

The Big Issue's Street Art page gives talented, marginalised individuals an outlet for creative expression

‘Painting for Kahlil Gibran’

By Paul Bellingham

Working primarily in painting, drawing and collage, Paul is fascinated by the process behind his art, which he describes as “a partnership between the conscious and the unconscious mind”. He submits this piece with the support of Creative Future, a Brighton-based charity supporting under-represented artists. Paul has had experience of homelessness and suffers with ongoing mental health difficulties.


You can see more of Paul’s work in person at Brighton Artist Open Houses with Creative Future throughout May:
