About Michael Wall

Michael Wall is a visual artist based in London, UK. Playfully addressing scale, form and color, his pieces are both ambiguous and approachable. Inspired by geometric abstraction of the 1980s, Wall’s work exists to mirror contemporary society through conformity, preconceptions and individualism. Through themes of familiarity and hierarchy, his practice explores the everyday commonalities that connect us all, most recently the relationships we hold with society’s most ubiquitous materials.

STATEMENT

"My practice has always gravitated towards perceptions and conformities, exploring individualism and how it is rooted in contemporary issues. Focusing on society’s most ubiquitous elements, I'm ultimately interested in the things that connect us all.

 

Utilizing the 'familiar', I'm attempting to create a universal aesthetic, I work to challenge our relationships with society most inalienable of technologies. Turning more inwardly on the world of art, exploring hierarchies of materials, I examine consumerisms footprint on contemporary living." - Michael Wall
