In 2013 Mychael Barratt was elected President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (PRE). He was made an Elected Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) in 1998 and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE) in 2002.
Mychael was born in Toronto, Canada but has been living and working in London since 1984. His art school training comprised Symposium School of Art in Winnipeg, Canada; Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Halifax, Canada; and Central St Martin's School of Art, London.
His book ‘Intaglio: A Guide to Traditional Printmaking Techniques’ was published in 2008. He has won numerous awards including the Ashmolean Museum Prize in 2006, where his work has been added to the collection.
There are many layers of substance and humour behind each of his paintings and etchings, and his quirky compositions are eminently collectable.
