ARTful are delighted to present 2 sculptures by sculptor Paul Vanstone for 40 Portman Square. As part of their art programme, we are proud to present two torso’s on display for the next six months.

Vanstone studied sculpture at Saint Martin’s School of Art going on to obtain an MFA at the Royal College of Art in 1993. Following his graduation Vanstone worked in Italy at the traditional marble carving studios near the famous Carrera quarries. He also spent time working in Berlin and has travelled to Rajasthan to learn India’s traditional marble carving techniques. On his return to the UK, and for the next five years, Vanstone became an assistant to leading British sculptor, Anish Kapoor.
