Paul Butvila was born in England and moved to Canada as a child, along with his family’s immigration. Inspired by the works of renowned fantasy artist Boris Vallejo, Paul decided he would be an illustrator. After trying his hand at fantasy/sci-Fi painting, he began to paint in the style of photo-realism, where he perfected his technical skills. His subject matter included highly detailed and reflective boats, planes and motorcycles. Eventually he decided to concentrate on painting classic pinup art from retro to modern. He presently resides in British Columbia, Canada.
