Bio

Kingston Poplar is a British contemporary painter currently living and working in the British Virgin Islands. He uses paint to document his own life and experiences with a focus on reflecting contemporary culture and the current zeitgeist. Born in Australia in 1996 he shortly after moved to the UK, where he grew up in a small town in the East Midlands to a working class family. He studied a degree in Fine Art painting at Leeds Arts University where he discovered an interest in contemporary abstract painting. However, not feeling comfortable with his work he gave up painting after graduating and briefly pursued a career in illustration. This process would eventually lead him back to painting, but in his current illustrative style.
