Artist Biography


Michael Beard works across various disciplines including painting, illustration and ceramic sculpture. Michael’s artwork enables him to articulate his immense passion for travel. Compulsive writings of names of cities, famous towers and graphical signage and symbols that he identifies in each location, are strong themes in his work. The repetitive overlapping and fluidity of his handwriting conveys Michael’s vigorous energy and speed in which he creates his work.
