Paul Eastwood is a Wales-based visual artist who treats art as a form of material storytelling. His work creates imagined histories and futures to investigate how spaces, artefacts, and memory communicate identities. Language – fleeting or imprinted, natural or invented, hegemonic or minority – is a constant object and medium of his practice. His work includes video, installation, ceramic, textiles, drawings and prints.
He was educated at Yale College, Wrexham (2003-4), Wimbledon School of Arts, London (2004-7), and the Royal Academy Schools, London (2011-14). Since his return to Wales he has won the inaugural NOVA Art Prize, Wales (2017), and has participated in numerous exhibitions across Wales, England, and Europe. These include a solo show at Chapter Gallery, Cardiff (2019), and, just this year, group shows at Tŷ Pawb, Wrexham, and Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno. In 2020, he spent a three-month residency as Creative Wales Fellow at the British School in Rome.
