Paul Benjamins

This Time its for Real

18th March - 22nd April 2018




“When Paul was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in July 2014, friends suggested he write a cancer diary.  Instead, Paul found an old sketchbook and started drawing. By the time he died, seventeen months later, he had made more than two hundred drawings………The sketchbook drawings he made are occasionally dark, generally humorous and mainly optimistic and forward looking.  They remain a powerful visual statement of how he felt, day by day, living with terminal cancer.”

Extracts from Jacqui Benjamin’s introduction to the book This Time it’s for Real  about the last works of her husband, artist Paul Benjamins.

We are pleased to be showing a selection of Paul Benjamin’s sketchbooks and to invite you to the book launch of This Time it’s for Real. Published in a numbered edition of 200, the book measures 350mm x 450mm, with over 150 pages. It has more than 120 images from Paul’s sketchbooks, plus photos, blown up images and introductions. The book costs £300.00 a copy, with profits of at least £50.00 a copy going to St Christopher’s Hospice, who cared for Paul during the last weeks of his life.
