British photo-artist Michael Banks, born in 1960 and dubbed in contemporary art circles as the “Guru of Abstraction”, is widely credited with creating some of the most exciting and unique art in today’s modern art scene.
He studied Fine Art and Photography in Florence, Italy, and then returned to London to work as a professional photographer, where he enjoyed a very high-profile and celebrated career, and was able to perfect his craft as an artist.
His highly original abstract photo-art has led to artwork projects with art consultants, interior designers, architects and product developers throughout the world, with his work being frequently exhibited, and his art being specified for prestigious international hospitality, corporate and private interiors, as well as being used in the creation of retail product. His most recent solo exhibit was at the prestigious Vilacasas Foundation in Barcelona.
His client list is a “who’s who” of publically quoted corporations and global hotel chains spanning The USA, Europe, The Middle and Far East, as well as a select group of internationally recognised private collectors, and art publishers.
“It was when studying Fine Art in Florence, and absorbing the “Chiaroscuro” technique of the Renaissance painters, that I really “Saw the Light”. But rather than Painting, I was captivated by Photography, and immediately set out on a very singular, personal journey, to try and push the boundaries of what is artistically possible with a camera.
Photography in any case is defined as “Drawing with Light”, and I always drew, using a camera, in an Abstract style. Photography historically liberated Painting from the Duty of Representation, and in recent years, new technology, in a myriad of forms, has now liberated Photography from its duty to simply record visible reality.
My vision of the world is an Abstract one, and in my images I seek to show the Hidden Beauty that surrounds us, in the forms, shapes, curves, lines, and colours of my abstractions, and to communicate my conviction that the world is full of visual wonders, waiting to be discovered.”
