MICHAEL'S MIXED MEDIA POP SURREALIST CLUSTER PAINTINGS CONVEY PERSONAL AND CULTURALLY BASED THEMES. THESE THEMES ARE EXPLORED BY SOURCING AND COMBINING VISUAL ICONS FROM THE ARTIST'S GENERATION, REFERENCING THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPUTER GAME CULTURE, THE INTERNET PHENOMENON, THE EVOLUTION OF A MULTICULTURAL CONSUMER SOCIETY, ADVERTISING AND THE EMERGENCE OF GRAFFITI ART. BY FUSING RECOGNIZABLE VISUAL ELEMENTS TOGETHER IN RANDOM COMPOSITION, THE WORKS ENGAGE THE VIEWER TO RESPOND SIMULTANEOUSLY TO THESE CLUSTERS, EVOKING THEIR OWN UNIQUE RESPONSE TO EACH COMBINATION. THE WORKS ARE RICH IN COMMUNICATION, OBVIOUS AND HIDDEN MESSAGES LIE WITHIN EACH EXPLOSION OF VISUAL STIMULUS TO INTERPRET.

MICHAEL HAS SHOWN IN GROUP SHOW PREVIOUSLY AT GORKER, AROUND AUSTRALIA AND IN LOS ANGELES. HIS WORK HAS BEEN FEATURED ON JUXTAPOZ.COM, NOTCOT.COM AND IN EMPTY MAGAZINE. YOU CAN SEE SOME T-DESIGNS BY MICHAEL ON TANKTHEORY.COM AND MORE OF HIS WORK ON HIS PERSONAL WEBSITE. MICHAEL'S FIRST SOLO SHOW WILL BE AT GORKER GALLERY AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT COMES NEXT FROM THIS VERY PROMISING ARTIST.
