This week’s Deviant is American artist Michael Shapcott. Shapcott began drawing at an early age and in high school he realized art would be a life-long passion. He attended Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut graduating in 2007.
“Shapcott’s art is a unique blend of illustration and traditional portraiture created with a blend of acrylics, graphite and oil. Viewers and purchasers of Mike’s paintings have called them powerful, inspiring, and filled with emotion. Symbols from dream imagery, folklore, and personal memories are the major inspirations and elements used in Mike’s work.”
As well as painting, Shapcott creates art videos that track the process of painting that show his unique style of working.
