Argall, Eddie

Primarily working with Acrylic on Canvas, Eddie also enjoys making Charcoal Sketches.

Eddie Argall was born in Melbourne, Australia, and moved to Palm Beach on the Queensland Gold Coast shortly after.  His passion for art developed early in his school years, but due to his father's passion for motorcycles and speedway he followed in his father's footsteps and took on a career riding speedway.

In the early seventies he moved to the UK to pursue his speedway career. His racing career came to an abrupt end following an accident and he had a lengthy rehabilitation ahead of him.
His passion for art was his salvation and he began creating charcoal sketches and paintings within the sport of motorcycle speedway.
Family and business took a priority and his art became a pastime.

Upon returning to the Gold Coast of Australia many years later he resumed his love of painting and drawing.

After relocating to Mission Beach, a tropical paradise in North Queensland he was able to pursue his artistic dream.

In January 2013 Eddie Argall was awarded Top Art Award from The Cairns Art Society.   The 66th Annual award is the largest Competition in North Queensland. Eddie felt honoured to have his Painting "Cassowary Licuala" selected from near two hundred entries.
