Eyton has travelled extensively, particularly to India, Israel and Sudan. In 1982 he was commissioned by the Artistic Records Committee to observe and paint the Gurkha regiment in Hong Kong and the New Territories, the paintings of which were exhibited at the Imperial War Museum. In 1985 he was Resident Artist at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, with subsequent exhibitions held at the hospital, Surrey University and the King’s Fund Centre. In 1996, the Government Art Collection commissioned him to record the centenary of the British Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He was also invited by the Tate Gallery to work in the Bankside Power Station prior to it becoming Tate Modern, and two pictures subsequently entered the Tate Collection. Since 1999 he has been Resident Artist at the Eden Project in Cornwall...
