Paul Gell

482a

Frederick Paul Gell was born in Manchester on the 16th February 1918. His father, Charles, was a career military officer serving with the Mechanical Engineers. The family was of Manx origins with grand-parents and earlier generations resident in the Isle of Man.

At the age of 16, Gell was mixing with other Lancashire artists, among them L.S.Lowry, but thoughts of an artistic profession were placed firmly on hold whilst he worked as an air traffic controller in the Royal Air Force.
