Michael Sole Art Prints on Canvas
Seascape artist Michael Sole graduated from Wimbledon College of Art in London in 2008. Since then Sole has gone on to exhibit in several hugely successful group and solo shows across England and France selling out completely by the end of each show. In 2009 and 2010 he was awarded "Young Artist of the Year" by the Royal Society of Marine Artists for his work exhibited in a group show in the Mall Galleries, London and in 2017 he was shortlisted for the esteemed Threadneedle prize.
Michael Sole's work explores painting as a process using the great outdoors as his inspiration. He immerses himself in his surrounding enabling him to bring thoughts, ideas, and the physical essence of the landscape back into the studio and onto his canvases. Often he spends months at a time observing his choice of subject matter, completely immersing himself in the task. He says: "The sea and the sky are fascinating to me, especially in extreme circumstances such as during storms. In painting I feel very strongly that energy must be met with energy. By this I mean big seas and powerful subject matter benefits from energetic, physical and confident painting which usually includes allowing the paint to have its own way, without using a brush. Dripping, pouring, throwing, lifting, shaking all add to these involuntary effects. Through these processes and techniques I hope to capture the power and atmosphere of the environment that I have placed myself into".
