Honor Eastly is one of those hard to pin down multi-disciplinary artists. She creates theatre shows, music, spoken word, web-based projects, publications, sculptural installations and anything else she can get her hands on. Like Mies Van Der Rohe, she is a “form follows function” artist, where the medium is dictated by the concept and is often disguised as something else – a comedy show, a consumer product, a dance class.
At the moment much of her time is focussed on the weekly podcast she does with her ex-fiancé, Being Honest With My Ex, as well as her new project, Starving Artist, a podcast series which will focus on how creatives deal with money. In her other life she works in mental health, which is a subject which blends so well with her other interests that it's hard to tell where the work and art begin and end. In her spare time she doesn't have any.
