Leeds-born Paul Fryer is truly a British phenomenon. A Renaissance Man, who dropped out of Art School to become an Electro Pop singer, made his name as a celebrated DJ in the 90s a, he was instrumental in the creation of the widely acclaimed Art-based clubs The Kit Cat Club and Vague. Then moved to London in 1996 where he has designed books and other printed material for several artists, fashion houses and record labels as well as working as technical consultant for several contemporary artists. During this period he wrote a book of poetry, Don't Be So…, which was illustrated by Damien Hirst.
He left the Italian house Fendi after 5 years as musical director. His critically acclaimed multimedia show Electronic Elvis was successfully performed at several London venues in 2003 & 2005 and was released on vinyl in 2005. He has been a visual artist since, showing at various shows and galleries across the country. What amazes me about this guy's work is that he isn't at least as big as Hirst by now. His religious themed figurative sculptures and conceptual pieces are awesome.
