Paul Sonabend was born in Liverpool in 1957, to parents of Polish/German origin. Persuaded by them that a degree leading to a sensible job was the correct path for a nice Jewish boy, he reluctantly studied Economics with Politics at Liverpool University, emerging with a respectable result. He has always been deeply involved in the arts. As a student he wrote two plays, both successfully performed by Liverpool Playhouse. But soon painting took over as his true passion. He moved south to Bath and briefly attended Bristol Art College, but never completed the course: a tutor advised him to 'just go away and paint', which is exactly what he did. He has lived and worked in Bath ever since.

It would have been hard to grow up in 70's Liverpool without imbibing its lively music scene. 'Band' 2014 evokes this period, with an affectionate streak of dark humour that is very much part of Sonabend's work. The topic recurs in an odd metaphorical treatment of the human condition: of suffering, loss, compassion and mortality. Sonabend has always followed his own road, whilst paying tribute to the influences of various artistic movement and artists: the German Expressionists Beckman, Kirchner, George Grosz and Otto Dix; Picasso and more recently the New York neo-expressionist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who died tragically young in 1988. Sonabend absorbs what they have to say and reinterprets it in a way that is entirely his own.
