Paul Hodges (b 1974, Melbourne) is a mid-career artist known for his figurative paintings. He is an incredible colourist, and while his preferred medium is painting, he has worked across a variety of mediums throughout his career. Inspired by dancers, models and the romantic Old Masters, his work concentrates on representing the human figure in motion, which he sources from magazines and books. Hodges has worked in the Arts Project studio since 1998 and has presented numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work is held in the National Gallery of Victoria (as gifted by Stuart Purves) and in private collections throughout Australia.
