Michael Wall is an emerging abstract painter, currently working in London and exhibiting in collaborative and solo shows around Europe, including London and Berlin.
Michael left formal education in 2014 in order to explore his own relationship with the visual arts. He has developed a practice that embraces minimalism and craftsmanship. This resurgence into traditional skills comes from an earlier heavy dependence on digital media, in which the creative limitations this held pushed him to explore a vast range of printing and sculpture techniques.
By encompassing simple forms and block colours, Michael aims to engage a reaction from the viewer, allowing them to decide what the works mean. The use of large scale works exaggerate these notions with the minimal of direction.
” Art is subjective, to me the best bit is the constant learning and experimentation.
The way we can depict things we see, hear and feel is limitless – it’s fun to work with so many people with a wealth of knowledge and ideas. ”
