LUAP takeover at The Exhibitionist Hotel

PAUL ROBINSON at The Exhibitionist Hotel aka

LUAP, a multidisciplinary artist, born in Grimsby (UK), carries his adult-size Pink Bear suit and professional camera equipment to the ends of the earth, having visited every continent except Antarctica. This is his alter ego, muse and model, his escape and a bridge. The photograph he brings home acts as a bouncing-board for the next step of his creative process. By employing different mediums and techniques he tackles issues of mental health, connection and the environment. “Sometimes we can feel mentally lost, like we are climbing through a wild jungle in our mind. This sensation can feel overwhelming and

disorientating, but we must remind ourselves that jungles give us oxygen and nutrients allowing us to live, breathe and develop - nature and nurture. By changing our perspective on how we cope with the inner jungle of our thoughts and memories, rather than fighting it, we dissolve our fear of being lost and instead learn to thrive and grow.” His most iconic series depicts a pink teddy bear come-to-life and placed in the real world acting as a metaphor for discovery and exploration. The costumed figure – a striking motif in his work – exists between reality and make-believe, youthful innocence and corruption, leading a lifestyle that

looks simultaneously enviable and questionable. LUAP sells and exhibits his work globally in London, New York, Dubai, Hong Kong & Berlin. He has exhibited alongside internationally renowned artists including Picasso, Banksy, Warhol & Hirst at Andipa Gallery Knightsbridge and created large bespoke artworks for exclusive London Members’ Club and Daisy Green Collection. A Pink Bear print recently sold for three times the listed price at Christie’s on behalf of the Terrence Higgins Trust. Sales enquiries: info@do-good-factory.co.uk


'What A Wonderful World' LUAP takeover of the Exhibitionist Hotel 15 November - 28 February 2022. Working across various mediums his paintings hint at abstract expressionism infused with the explosive energy and bold colour of Pop and Urban Art. Exploring existential subjects within a contemporary feel his work stands alone in its composition and provoking content and subject matter. “The complexity of Robinson’s imagery and overlaying of pattern has been informed by the work of Robert Rauschenberg. Robinson paints a world, which joins Christopher Wool’s fabric paintings with a 1970’s Peter Phillips pop landscape. These images are reminiscence of dream sequences from 1960’s films; a drug trip depicted in solarisation photography where the image recorded is wholly or partially reversed in tone.” Martin Maloney


THE PINK BEAR

“Pink bear was born as an alter ego for me, one seeking to melt away fear and darkness with the joy and warmth of a childhood memory. When someone looks at my art I want them to feel comfort in the Pink Bear, regardless of what it may be juxtaposed with. The artistic experience comes full-circle by recreating happy memories for others. Through gifting a shared moment of nostalgic happiness, I hope to build a refuge for others.”
