Michael Shapcott

Michael Shapcott's body of work has a complexly bight blend of folk art mixed with a wide range of other traditional/modern cultural influences...mostly though I believe I'm responding to the 'aliveness' in the eyes and expressions of his subjects. Beautiful, emotive stuff. He makes some stellar videos exploring and sharing his process as well. It's such a gift to be let in on process...
