  3. 3. Paul Karslake Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts Self-confessed modern surrealist, award-winning artist and brother-in-law of Ronnie Wood, Paul Karslake can never be said to conform to the preconception of an artist struggling for inspiration and full of self-doubt, but instead brims with inspiration and enthusiasm. His studio is a realm of colourful works of art from many disciplines, which are indicative of the scope of talent, this one-man exudes. In 1990 Paul had the honour of being elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.From modern surrealism to photo-realism, Paul prides himself on being able to work in any style and any medium. Environmental issues, iconic heroes and human suffering are subjects which often feature in his art. Still life, animals and portraits are frequently interpreted with his own humour.Inspired by famous personalities whose imagery, persona or music has survived, often against the odds, his collection captures the first modern fashion icon of Audrey Hepburn, the dark fascination of the Kray Twins, the enigmatic stare of Davids Eye and the eternal survivor Keith Richards.Pauls original painting of Keith Richards commissioned by Keiths wife in 1998, was seen by Johnny Depp at Keiths home and quoted as the inspiration behind his Pirates of the Caribbeans character, Captain Jack Sparrow.
