British, b. 1963

Draftsman and sculptor Paul Noble is most known for his 15-year monumental drawing project, Nobson Newton, in which the artist acted as social engineer, architect, and archaeologist to produce an imaginary city that has been called an, “impassioned satire of Britain's new towns.” Noble's dark, meticulous vision—including aspects of bestiality, cannibalism, decapitation, and other horrors among its dense detail—alludes to such diverse sources as ancient Chinese scrolls, military cartography, Fabergé eggs, and the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Noble is also recognized as a founding member of City Racing, an influential artists’ space in London in the late 1980s and 1990s.
