Mychael Barratt PPRE, HON RWS was born in Ontario, Canada and then travelled around Europe, finally settling in London in 1984. He is a great raconteur and his exuberant personality shows through in his original prints and paintings. A lifetime of scanning artist’s monographs and reading everything from pulp fiction to classics has invested his work with a vocabulary of half remembered impressions and brazenly pilfered imagery. Sometimes these borrowed images will register with the viewer with a curious sense of déjà vu and other times with a hearty laugh.
He is a past president of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and as a consummate printmaker across a wide range of print media his work is highly collectable.
