Michael is skilled in creative building and constructing with interest in exploring characteristics and potential of various materials. Researching options of solutions and developing his own Do-It-Yourself methods are part of his art-making process. His artistic vision often is implemented through projects of large-scale and/or technical or material challenge.
Michael has been a great support in curatorial and other artists’ projects where his creative and technical skills have been indispensable on the level of fabrication, props building and installation. Interested in exchange of expertise, he is keen to share his knowledge and skill with fellow artists, especially, working side by side with artists-in-residence @Dog Rocks studio workshop, equipped with a range of tools, to support them as well as mentor in realizing their ideas.
