Michael Sole creates impressive abstract paintings, inspired by the great outdoors. Sole places himself in the environments he paints for weeks at a time. Armed with a fishing rod and a tent, he walks for miles and miles collecting his thoughts. These translate to canvas back at his studio. "Nature is fascinating to me, especially in extreme circumstances such as storms. Energy must meet with energy in painting. Big seas and powerful subject matters deserve energetic, physical and confident painting."
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
Of the Michael Sole prints I bought, this is my favourite. The depth of colours in the water could be from a photo. It looks so real! As ever, the quality of the print, matt and framing from King & McGaw are top-notch. Exactly what I wanted and perfect. Thank you!
