After gradating from Elam School of Fine Arts in 1977, Paul Radford  begun to exhibit in solo exhibitions within a year of graduating; and was represented by Barry Lett Galleries from 1979. He has led a varied and illustrious career – working as the lead scenic artist on a number of international films (including King Kong and the World’s Fastest Indian); as well as having had a bevy of sell out shows both in New Zealand and internationally.

Radford is widely known for his use of the cycladic head, which became a recurring motif in his work for nearly a decade. The series explored abstraction through the universal presence of inexpressive and immobile heads in various settings. His Venus Guitar Club exhibition transformed this shape into  that of a musical instrument, maori war club or body.
