Paul Margocsy had followed his natural skill of drawing cartoons and figures with children's nursery murals and later dressed windows for Meyers but his focus dramatically changed one evening as he saw a very fine bird painting, He had a new goal. He became engrossed in wildlife art. After much research into ornithology and through self-taught efforts and experiments his work progressed.  A few years later he became a member of "The Wildlife Art Society of Australasia" and the very next year won first prize for the best painting.
Since that eventful exhibition many things began to formulate ~ Paul was included in a book launch in 1990 featuring 70 of the best living traditional artists in Australia. He also had a book published on his own paintings. Australia Post commissioned him in 1991 to do a water bird series of stamps and he was subsequently commissioned by the United Nations to paint a series of endangered species in 1994, which was released in Vienna.
Paul has had solo exhibitions in London and Japan, six solo shows in America and two at the exclusive "Raffles" Hotel in Singapore, making his international career blossom.  To be chosen to exhibit at the prestigious "Leigh Yawkey Woodson Birds In Art" show in America (80 selected from over 3500 entries) was a "feather in his cap". He was chosen two years running in 1995 and 1996.   Paul was honoured with a fellow membership to “The Wildlife Art Society Of Australasia” for services to the society and wildlife art.  In 2006, he became the first Australian wildlife artist to have a solo exhibition in Hong Kong.   In 2009 he released his second book “Away With The Birds”.
In 2014 he was on the front cover and had an article about his work in the first edition of 'Creative Artist' magazine. Paul was included in the 'Wildlife Art Museum of Australia' book launch at the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne November 2014.
Paul continues to exhibit here and is internationally recognised as one of Australia's finest wildlife artists.
