Michael Shapcott

Shapcott (www.michael-shapcott.com) is a 28 year old painting from Hartford, Connecticut. His paintings use daring colour palettes to which he creates emotionally charged portraits. “His work deals with highly detailed graphite underdrawings which he then paints with colorful washes in oil and acrylic paints.” His work has been in a number of exhibitions, all in America however, which is why I think he isn’t too heard of in the UK. I really enjoy his work because of the emotion and expression shown in the paintings by using colour. It’s all carried out so well, in a messy yet controlled manner.
