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 paintings reflect a keen interest in people, architecture and daily experiences. Colour is also an important element in his work, a quality present in Michael’s painting featured in this exhibition.
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 recent years Michael has exhibited in the following exhibitions: MIFQ at King George Square, Art from the Margins annual exhibition at Brisbane City Hall, Access Arts annual exhibition at KPMG, Wonderland at BEMAC and Undercover Artist Festival at Queensland Theatre Company.
