Drawing is an integral part of Michael’s life, as he spends two to three hours drawing each day. For Michael, drawing is a form of communication and social engagement while providing a vehicle to process a range of experiences.
Michael’s work reflects a keen interest in people, architecture and daily experiences. Colour is also an important element in his work. Michael has painted for many years and more recently studied ceramics at TAFE. Michael particularly enjoys the tactile experience of clay and says he enjoys painting because “it makes him feel happy”.
In Michael’s most recent work he continues to experiment with colour and collage and has turned some of his most vibrant pieces in to a book titled Michael. Michael has exhibited in a range of exhibitions such as Art from the Margins exhibition, MIFQ exhibition and Fusions at Brisbane Square Library.
