About Michael’s practice:

“My goal is to share, through immersive palette and brave brush strokes, fascinating world of colourful still-lifes. I want to engage the viewer in contemplation of strong contrasting shades and the hidden beauty of everyday objects around us.

My still life paintings are charged with freshness and brightness. They ground the viewer in a familiar space while employing common shapes and forms, yet they break the conventional viewpoint by removing the sense of perspective. Intense colour combinations are my primary artistic direction, and I've been exploring the subject for years.”
