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.

« The Bitumen Men » A new painting, oil on stretched canvas, available to purchase direct from my studio. I have taken a slightly impressionistic approach to this, but enjoyed capturing a vignette from the life of the city. I remember getting in trouble fir stamping on pitch bubbles and ruining my shoes in the hot summer weather. I hope I have been able to capture a sense of an activity we don’t see so much of any more. Can be framed to gallery standard and shipped . Drop me a line if you’d like this on your wall. #art #mikewaldronart #oilpainting #manchester #northernart #northernartists #galleryart #nextdoorgallery #bitumen #lostjobs #nostalgia #contemporarypainting #britishpainting #kunst #peinture #artistsofinstagram ...
