Mychael Barratt creates clever and humorous paintings and etchings inspired by literature and art history. He imparts charm and intrigue into each and every piece of art, making his quirky compositions eminently collectable.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Mychael has been living and working in London since 1984. He studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art before moving to London to study at Central Saint Martin’s.
Mychael's book ‘Intaglio: A Guide to Traditional Printmaking Techniques’ was published in 2008. In 2012 he was commissioned to create a large-scale mural in Mile End. In 2013 he was made President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.
Today his work can be seen in some of the UK's most prominent collections including The British Library, The British Museum, the V&A, the Ashmolean and Her Majesty The Queen's private collection.
