Paul Mount was a sculptor and painter born in Newton Abbot, Devon. He studied at the Paignton School of Art, 1937-40, under the sculptor Alexander Sutcliffe, then at Royal College of Art, 1940-1 and 1946-8, with Gilbert Spencer, Percy Horton and others. He taught drawing and painting at Winchester School of Art, then in 1955 went to Nigeria to open and run an art department at Yabba College of Technology.
While there Paul Mount was introduced to architectural sculpture and began large scale three-dimensional work. When he returned to England in 1962 he turned to smaller pieces in fibreglass, cast iron and bronze. Learned to weld with local blacksmith, began to use stainless steel extensively and joined Penwith Society of Art, with which he had much in common.
He had his first London show with Drian Gallery in 1964; later showed with John Whibley Gallery, Marlborough Fine Art, New Art Centre, Falmouth Art Gallery, 2001, and Beaux Arts Bath, 2003.
Paul Mount's work can be found in most West European countries, America and Nigeria. His sculptures and mobiles are abstract with themes frequently suggested by the natural world, sometimes alien and strange, charged with energy.
He lived at St. Just, Penzance, Cornwall.
