Herts-based pop art painter

Welcome

About Mike

Mike Dawson is a UK artist who paints iconic people, images and themes from popular culture. Originally from Birkenhead, Merseyside, Mike’s influences include pop artists - such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol - as well as his mother (who took up watercolour painting in her retirement), Claude Monet and the English Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse. As a musician and a former public relations consultant, art and creativity have always been part of his life. A self-taught painter, Mike now creates custom, fun, pop artworks for fashionable homes and chic offices. He explains: “I like the clear lines, bold colours and vitality of pop art. As a movement, it developed from the optimism of the 1950s and mirrored the rise of advertising, consumerism and celebrity culture. My work references how captivated we remain by the glamour of iconic people.” Mike’s art comes ready-to-hang, with a lovely gloss finish on hand-stretched canvas wrapped around a high quality, warp-resistant pine frame. Mike and his wife live in Elstree, Hertfordshire. His paintings have been available for purchase at the contemporary art gallery Graphics Plus in St Albans. He has exhibited at Radlett Art Society’s summer exhibition, Aldenham Art Festival, Borehamwood’s Diversity Festival and at an international art exhibition at DLD College London. His pop art portrait of Captain Tom Moore, in front of the NHS rainbow, raised £770 at auction, for the West Hertfordshire hospitals charity Raise.
