Famous for his stunning landscape paintings, Michael James Smith reveals his remarkable new collection of contemporary figurative works for the first time.
Proving his artistic talents Michael James Smith has recently taken a new direction into the world of figurative painting, driven by narrative rather than nature. From the urban socialite to the fallen office worker his new works imbue an acute sense of the modern world now.
Philip Short, Managing Director of The Colomb Art Gallery, London: “Michael’s new figurative work proves his artistic ability across distinctly differing genres, from country to contemporary. His landscapes beautifully represent the great British landscape whereas his figurative works represent a frank observation of our modern world. At first view both works seem to be from different artists but take a closer look and Michael’s signature brushwork can be seen on each leaf and freckle.
