Michael West (b. 1962, United Kingdom)
Born and raised in the United Kingdom I started my career specializing in classical sculpture, honing my skills in the film industry at Pinewood, and Shepperton studios, in London and gaining a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art at the University of Plymouth, my work being displayed and in private collections and galleries worldwide. My belief in creativity through lateral thinking drives my work. What I experience about the world naturally invokes a response - on the surface abstract, and surreal, humorous and entertaining, beneath blunt and thought provoking, questioning reality and normality.
Education: BA Honours Degree Fine Art, University of Plymouth.
Michael West was chosen as a Juried Winner in Round #5 of the 2012 Showcase Series.
