Paul Franklyn

Paul curates SohoCreate Festival in London, a festival of creativity that brings together in conversation an eclectic mix of celebrated artists, designers, playwrights and filmmakers.

His passion for contemporary art led him to consult on the launch of a new art website in 2012, to showcase the work of partners such as Magnum Photos, Tate, Marc Quinn and Damien Hirst. During this time, he also commissioned exclusive editions from Grayson Perry and Howard Hodgkin. 

With over twenty years experience in the music business, Paul commissioned many innovative video directors, photographers and musicians. As joint managing director and co-founder of Relentless Records (1999-2009), Paul also worked with artists such as So!Solid, Joss Stone and KT Tunstall and sold over 10 million records.

Paul sits on the board of the MacMillan De’Longhi Arts Trust and Ikon’s London Committee as well as being an Expert Partner for Creative United.
