Michael Shapcott

Artist Michael Shapcott‘s works are more than just portraits. They feel deep and seem to almost look into your soul. They are both whimsical and emotionally charged, so powerful and beautiful with endless texture. Symbols from dream imagery, folklore and personal memories are the major inspirations and elements used in Shapcott’s work. His art is a unique blend of illustration and traditional portraiture created with a blend of acrylics, graphite and oil. With such a unique technique, it’s surprising to hear that painting is really intuitive for him and he doesn’t plan anything ahead of time. His work deals with highly detailed graphite underdrawings which he then paints with colorful washes in oil and acrylic paints. In addition to painting, Shapcott creates art videos that track the process of painting a painting and show his unique style of working.
