CONTEMPORARY ART FROM MANCHESTER

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.

“Dancing On The Tank Traps” A larger work, 160 cm x 100 cm, This painting has been occupying me on and off for a few weeks. It’s finally completed and ready to be varnished and framed. I wanted explore that period ten years after the end of the Second World War, when young men largely abandoned their fathers’ style of dress, aspirations and morality; and many young women finally had some clothing off the ration, a weekly wage of their own and some freedoms. This scene is set precisely between the end of the war, and the so called sexual revolution of the mid 1960s. There may be tension on the beach. This is now for sale. I would love to hear what you think. It’s ready for varnishing and framing.#mikewaldronart #teddyboys #1950sstyle #jive #jitterbug #nostalgia #beachscene #manchesterartist #rockers #rocknroll #sexualtension #1950sgirls #secondworldwar #kunst #northernart ...

“Kids On The Corner” .Acrylic on stretched canvas. My grandmother grew up on Louisa St , Openshaw before the Great War, where she and her sister Ellen and many of her friends, were weavers in the local cotton mill. I wanted to capture some of the atmosphere of the times, but with an update on the figures. I have tried to capture Louisa St, from Sexa St, and to recreate a sense of people going about their business. #mikewaldronart #manchester #manchesterartist #northernpainters #openshaw #terracedstreets #industriallandscape #industriallandscapepainting #lowry #valette #gorton #figuresinalandscape #bollington #chimneys #kunst #curateart #galleryart #artistsofinstagram ...
