Paul Shilling was born in 1953 and is the youngest brother of Arthur Shilling, generally regarded as among the most famous Canadian artists of all time. Arthur died in 1986 and Paul continues the Shilling legacy
What distinguishes the work of Paul and Arthur is the variety of beautiful colours they incorporate into their paintings. Paul is often referred to as the “Rainbow Artist” because of his distinctive and elaborate colour palette.
“For me, painting is a medium for healing, for celebrating the spirit, and it is a gift. It is an opportunity to explore and understand myself, and my place and relationship within the circle of creation.”
