Paul Bowman’s work explores the political and social landscapes that have led to violent breakdowns of society and human interaction in contemporary history. From the Balkans conflict and Rwandan genocide of the nineties to the present murders of journalists and human rights activists in Russia. Bowmans paintings and sculptural pieces attempt to make sense of these events and visually seek to present the search for reasons, motivations and ramifications amongst these acts of chaotic, often state sponsored splits in human relationships.
Bowman’s work has recently been exhibited at the Chaumont poster festival in France and the Anti design festival in London. He helped establish VAROOM! Magazine: the journal of found and made images and his work has appeared in numerous publications.
