Mike Waldron Art

Mike Waldron is a painter and printmaker, now settled in Bollington, Cheshire, midway between the wilds of the Peak District and the uber-urban modern metropolis of Manchester.

Mike was born and raised in East Manchester during the 1960s and 70s, where he witnessed great social change, learnt about community, found beauty in dilapidation and became fascinated with people, music and nature.

He first discovered his passion for painting in infants’ school, producing endless versions of imaginary churches in poster-colour on sugar paper. Despite an absence of any religious conviction, he has continued to be drawn to ecclesiastical buildings, particular those in disrepair.

Mike is fascinated by the beauty to be found in dilapidation and has consistently sought to capture the relationship between people, the built environment and natural landscapes. A recent discovery of sea-faring ancestry in the West of Ireland, may account for a parallel fascination with the crests and troughs of wild seascapes.

“Proximity 2” Very happy that this new painting will soon be on its way to its new owners overseas. This painting perhaps represents a sense of Summer optimism with the easing of pandemic controls. #art #contemporarypainting #manchestergallery #manchesterartist #northernart #abstractexpressionism #pandemicart #loftliving #collectart ...

Looking forward to when we can travel ...

« The Contessa Unbound » This 4 foot by 3 foot acrylic on stretched canvas, is my paean to les années folles. With a debt to McEvoy I have tried to achieve the looseness of watercolour with the depth of tone of oils, through the application of many layers of scumble and glaze. I don’t really want to part with her,as she has such a serene yet mischievous expression. But she is available on my website #mikewaldronart #lesanneesfolles #brightyoungthings #theroaringtwenties #flappergirl #flapper #contessa #northernart #bollington #manchesterartist #thepursuitoflove #loveinacoldclimate #nancymitford #acrylicpainting #artcollector #interiors #interiorstyling #manchesterinteriors #loftliving #ancoatsstyle #contemporaryart #gallery #glamour #societybeauties #instalike #instaartist #instagramart ...
