Paul Bacon has been very kind and humble to us at Art Wank! After scheduling an interview with Paul last week, we had a great chat and got to the end of the interview realising I hadn't pressed record! Rookie error. Paul was gracious enough to let us back in to re-record, this time I pressed record and we had an even better chat!

Paul Bacon lives in Avalon Beach where we caught up with him at his amazing apartment overlooking the sparkling surf break of South Avalon. Paul is a sculptor using steel as his preferred medium, using its elasticity and forgiving nature to add and subtract pieces to form a sculpture based on the landscape and architecture he sees around him. Paul also works as a social worker at St. Vincents Hospital part-time in the emergency department. His own art collection is something to behold, we took photos for instagram.

We spoke to Paul about how he goes about manufacturing his work, his representation with Watters and Maunsell Wickes Gallery, art school, collaborating with local artist Leonie Barton (see previous art wank episode) and more..... 

Thanks Paul, we really enjoyed interviewing you twice!!
