'Punk Victorian', Paul Harvey

Full length painting of a young woman in black holding a portrait of another young woman

acrylic on canvas, 212.5x75.5cm

Guitarist in punk band Penetration, college lecturer, safe driver.

"You don't think it's tempting fate, saying 'safe driver'? I don't want to die in a horrible accident. Why don't you write 'genius whose talent hasn't been fully recognised'?"

Partial to scallops and oysters, obtained by his builder from a secret location in Scotland. Drives to Hull estuary because, "I like to go where there isn't anything."

Obsessive timekeeper. Pessimistic England supporter. Genius whose talent hasn't been fully recognised.
