Paul Jackson is a New Zealand born artist of Tongan and Scottish descent. His childhood was spent amidst a community of artists; some of the country’s best-known painters and writers were family friends and daily visitors to the Jackson’s Mount Roskill home. It was, perhaps, inevitable that Jackson would follow in these artistic footsteps.

Jackson has carved a career for himself as a figurative painter in Australia, where he now lives, and he has been a regular finalist in Australia’s prestigious Archibald Prize for portraiture.

In Profile for the Ages, Jackson presents a series of highly detailed oil paintings as well as monoprints and woodblock prints.
