About The Artist
Australian artist/photographer - based between New York and the Gold Coast. Michael studied fashion design and worked as a photographer’s assistant in Sydney and NYC.
Michael's frenetic painting, illustrations and mixed media compliment his edgy photographic style, as his surrounds heavily influence each discipline.
His works combine his appetite for art, fashion and photography with an energetic street-art appeal where he says, ugliness and beauty coexist, just as they do in reality. Michael uses his works as commentary on the excess of contemporary culture, portraying the vulnerability, desire, anxiety and lust for consumption in a modern world.
