Michael Sutherland

Medium: Painting


Michael Sutherland – Artist

Michael is a painter of people and landscapes. His work embraces punchy colour and fragmented form. Beyond subject, new work is rarely planned. Using acrylics and oils, Michael’s approach is often free-wheeling and improvisational in the early stages and in laying down blocks of colour and expressive marks in an intuitive way, his paintings have achaotic starting point. His pieces evolve and find structure while simultaneously allowing the chaos of the beginnings to peek through.

His first solo show ‘High Tones, Low Lines’ ended in Nov 2023 and was a significant success, selling 21 of 24 original artworks. This was quickly followed by a second successful exhibition of landscape work in March 2024 – again selling beyond all expectations.

Michael is a Corsham-based artist originally from Tain in the north of Scotland. He has previously exhibited at The Corsham Gallery, Peacock Arts Trail and the Pound Arts Open Exhibition (where he won the People’s Choice Award), and his work was featured on the lockdown version of Sky Arts’ Portrait Artist of the Year.

Michael’s series of portraits of everyday TikTok users which embraces positivity and diversity – went viral with over 15 million views. You can follow this series along with his 80K followers via his TikTok page.
