Episode 11: Paul Eggins

Paul Eggins is a multidisciplinary artist based outside of Launceston, on the North-East coast of Tasmania. Paul brought his solo show ‘Drugs’ to Queenstown in October of 2020. Having missed the opening at Q-Bank, Henry and Emmalie visited Paul in the gallery. Later in the week, Paul stopped by to chat. Paul discusses being a coastal baby, the Cronulla race riots and how the media manipulates information, jumping around until you find a home that fits, “putting on his big boy pants” and diving into 30 years of debt, the first iteration of his solo show ‘Drugs’, the dangers of the ‘Just Say No’ narrative, modern day shamans and developing his unusual colour palette. 

“Paul is a multi-disiplinary artist from Tasmania, Australia. His focus is on Street Art, with a ever growing studio practice in drawing, painting, digital and sculpture. He completed his Bachelor of Contemporary Arts with Honours through the University of Tasmania in 2016.” – Paul Eggins, taken from his website
