Art is my passion

Michelle Hold is a German-born artist based in Italy who paints vibrant abstract works inspired by emotion and energy. Her canvases are loud and layered, enticing the viewer to look further and further into their depths. We just love the expressive force of Michelle’s canvases, and we’d recommend them for any interior in need of some punch. 

The artist, who grew up in Austria, had begun to study architecture when she fell into modelling. On her travels, she took various art and textile design classes. She then worked as a textile designer in Milan before later throwing herself full time into painting. 

Michelle has held solo exhibitions throughout Italy, and she has participated in international art fairs in Miami, Athens, Milan and Berlin. Her works have featured in group exhibitions across the globe. Her works are in collections in Europe, Usa, Iceland 

Michelle:  have a look at my new catalog

In this latest series of works for my solo exhibition ‘Turning Inside’ I have been concentrating on my inner voice. I would describe this series of paintings creations from a place of no time , no space no body, a place from where I gather strength, definitely a place of freedom and peace.

There is still very much construction in the composition through applying multiple layering, but at the same time my desire to convey a sense of freedom, almost floating in the universe, through applying immense free gestures, while leaving space for surprise, for unexpected things to happen.

Simultaneously as I painted, I could feel a force within me wanting to catch the eye of the viewer and carry him along with me to a place of wellbeing, relaxation and mind opening views.

Color has always been vital to convey my message of harmony and beauty. The paintings are loaded with my favorite blues which bring you immediately into a state of ‘chilling out’ but then too, there are also many tones of magenta which, at the moment is the color that gives me most joy and cuddles and embraces my soul.

My studio is close to Milan, an hour from Malpensa airport. 


 Barry Martin: "Michelle Hold is an artist who has made her mark as abstract painter, and carved out an identity for herselve. She shamelessly makes vibrant, dynamic, polychromatic, colourful, resourceful, meaningful, strong, sometimes large- sized paintings, that invigorate, excite and inspire. She panders neither to taste ( except of course her own), nor current fads, or the kind of eye-catching, voguish, detritus that currently passes as art, and which is poured out by the ton in every arts quarter of the world!"
