Paine Proffitt (born 1972; Phoenix, Arizona) is an American-born artist living in England, best known for his sporting works and for his depiction of the “working man’s life” most recently in North Staffordshire.
Paine is the son of novelist and war correspondent Nicholas Proffitt. He cites some of his influences as being Chagall and Picasso and while not ascribing himself to any one art movement in particular, feels that surrealism, cubism, and contemporary naive art are the best labels for his work. The influence of Fred Otnes has also been noted, with this being most apparent in the collage work Proffitt produced under the pseudonym of Nicholas Hudson Paine. Similarities to L.S. Lowry have also been recognized due to the northern working-class themes of some of his works.
