Michael Sole is a based artist who earned a BA in Fine Art: Painting from the Wimbledon College of Art in London.
Since graduating, Sole has gone on to exhibit in group and solo shows across England and France. In 2009 and 2010 he was awarded “Young Artist of the Year” by the Royal Society of Marine Artists for his work exhibited in a group show in the Mall Galleries, London.
To gain inspiration he places himself into the environment he paints, enabling him to bring thoughts, ideas, and the physical presence of the landscape back into the studio and onto his canvases. Often he spends months at a time observing his choice of subject matter, completely immersing himself in the task.
