‘Being Human’, created by Nathan Preston (Preston Paperboy), is a portrait with distinct characteristics heavily featured in Preston's work. Preston works in-between the lines of realism and expressionism, dealing with the 'things unsaid' and allowing the viewer to connect with the piece deeper than surface level. The negative space is employed throughout his work, decorated with motifs and expressionistic markings. This piece would be a stunning addition to any home, from minimal to colourful.

Born in Essex, Preston studied Architecture at the University of Brighton, before shifting his creative energy into pursuing his lifelong passion of creating art.

Preston, who works under the pseudonym ‘Preston Paperboy’, is a self-taught painter who combines tenets of portraiture and expressionism with a street art sensibility. Working in-between the lines of realism & expressionism, his work employs the use of negative space, motifs, sketches & fine details to part-fill an open narrative - exploring love, loss, envy, consumerism and all that makes us human.

The distinct “Smiler” logo, featured on all Preston’s work, is a nuanced signature that represents his growth as an artist -- the sad smile & tear a nod to his past battles with depression-- the $$ eyes a reminder to not let greed cloud his vision -- and the lines overhead a symbol of the light and peace he’s found on his artistic journey.
