Michael KirkmanBorn: 1986
Michael Kirkman is a painter, illustrator and printmaker currently living and working in York. He is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art and completed an MA course at the Royal College of Art, London in 2010. Recent commissions include book cover designs for Faber & Faber and a linocut for the National Theatre.
Michael’s inspiration comes from a need to communicate moments in time that seem strange or extraordinary - to capture what goes unnoticed. Some important influences include Eduardo Paolozzi, Mimmo Paladino, Balthus, Edward Burra and Jonathan Gibbs.
