The Nighthawk

I am always keen to hear from artists who would be interested in a blog post focusing on their work. Usually, I ask for an artist’s statement and a few images which they would like to showcase, but these guidelines are very flexible and I am open to suggestions. If you would like a post on your work, please do contact:

This post will focus on the work of The Nighthawk (Paul Livesay).

“I am a self taught (outsider) artist. My work is abstract expressionism and also conceptual, working with acrylic paint on canvas. I picked up my first paint brush in 2006 at the age of 48. I painted how and what I felt at any given time. My sources for my works were predominantly my heart and soul. I tried to project my raw, unbridled emotions in as pure and organic a way as truly possible. All my works are hand painted and in no way digitally modified. I hope that I succeeded and that you enjoy them.” – The Nighthawk.
