Mychael Barratt is a printmaker and painter born in Toronto, Canada and has been living and working in the UK since 1984. Mychael studied at Central St. Martin’s School of Art in London and since graduating he became a Fellow and then President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.
Mychael’s works are full of detail and humour and depict visual narratives, often confidently pilfering famous characters from art history. Maps have become increasingly prevalent in Mychael’s work showing events from famous historical dates and themes showing his love of London and art history. His popular range of works featuring famous artists thought history and their pets, cleverly re-created in the original artist’s style, allows the work to register with viewers and adds a humorous sense of déjá vu.
