Born in Whitehorse, Canada

Paul MacIntyre holds an MFA from the University of Guelph (2016), a BFA from the University of Victoria (2012), and a diploma in visual arts from Vancouver Island University (2010). He has exhibited across Canada with recent exhibitions including Empty Gallery (Victoria, BC) and Wood Point Projects (Sackville, NB) in 2019.


Paul MacIntyre is a studio-based conceptual artist currently working in London, UK. Using historical precedence as a filter for interpreting the contemporary, he culls images, motifs, and sensibilities from the past and responds mostly through collage and drawing. His recent work addresses the reproducibility and ubiquity of canonical Western art, from traditional relief printing to the virtually identical “Art” section found in used bookstores from Canada to the UK and beyond. He considers the psychology of “filling in” a conceptual starting point with the narratives surrounding art-making of constant concern.
