“The plaster, concrete and various mixed media paintings and sculptures  exhibit strong elements of abstract expressionism and structured space.  Colour, texture and a unique perspective contribute to a body of work  that is skillfully executed in style and content”



“Mike's background in the Building Industry is of great influence to him as an  artist. This current series of works, exhibited on London Art, directly  examines and reflects the effects of manual labour on the building site  and its effect on the skin. Rather than using traditional painting  methods and mediums, Mike chooses to compound the imagery, using the  very same materials and skills associated with the trade”
