Paul Compton is a young artist in his early 30’s from Melbourne,  so far he has had a number of themes running throughout his art work. He has a particular fondness for

  •  Popular Culture, especially from the 60’s
  • Ghost stories
  • Victorian Vignettes
  • Wonder Cabinets
  • Animals
  • Objects lost and forgotten

He works largely on a small scale either drawing using ink and wash, tea or gouache or printmaking. Paul has produced beautiful detailed handmade books , zines and pop-ups. He has a love / hate relationship with printmaking…. loving the initial carving or engraving of the plate but often struggling with the technical side of printing. This rather softly spoken and humble personality produces quirky and humorous work both sensitive and delicate that deserve close examination.
