Two small prints of Paul White's colourful abstract paintings sold for more than £20,000 when they were auctioned in Hong Kong, in aid of the Japanese Tsunami Appeal, in 2011.

Now the Hunstanton-based painter is set to exhibit 40 of his works during the prestigious Art Basel Hong Kong, which starts next week. Mr White, 69, has painted since childhood and studied art in his native Hertfordshire. His works have been widely exhibited around the UK.

'I'm very excited to have this chance to exhibit in Hong Kong,' he said. 'It's always a challenge for an artist to present a one man exhibition, let alone so far away. I now have an agent in Hong Kong who looks after me, along with family, friends and contacts and it's reasonably straightforward to send artwork out there.'

Mr White has lived in Norfolk for 30 years and cites the county's coastline among his influences.

'The Norfolk coast as been a constant source of subject matter along with life in general,' he said. 'I might scribble down some very small idea, which might later turn into a large painting, or a painting may simply appear like magic on the canvas or paper.'

Mr White's work can be viewed online here.
