I had the pleasure of chatting to the very talented Michael Wann yesterday. He has an exhibition running at the moment called ‘self-assembly’. It’s a fantastic collection of self-portraits and is running for this month in ‘room’ @ The Model. Room is a contemporary exhibition space designated to the resident studio artists, and is independently programmed and curated.
I would love to be able to draw and Michael assures me that everyone can. Michael runs drawing workshops exploring a wide range of techniques, using the medium of charcoal for beginners and advanced practitioners. To find out more you can email him firstname.lastname@example.org
I first found out about Michael Wann when I saw this stunning portrait of Jack. B. Yeats hanging in the foyer of The Model for Yeats Day, 2013. I honestly think it should be there permanently. It was such an eye-catching portrait and caught everyone’s attention. The foyer looks very bare without it. To find out more about Michael’s work you can visit his website.
