Michael Strang (British)

Michael J. Strang studied under David Poole, Anthony Eyton and others at Wimbledon and Camberwell Schools. He has painted primarily in Cornwall since the 1970s, and had a show of 50 oils at Tate St Ives in 1995. He often paints en plein air, and there is a terrific momentum to his outdoor oils. His constant delight in colour and light is always apparent in his work; at times his vigour leads him into almost abstract renderings of the landscape. Increasingly he experiments with heavy forms of impasto, creating extraordinary textures that at times practically become three-dimensional artworks. He has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and his work is in numerous public collections worldwide and at home.
