Michael Taylor, born in 1979, is a South African artist based in Cape Town. With a Master of Fine Arts degree from Stellenbosch University, Taylor's artistic practice revolves around the dynamic and intuitive nature of drawing, which he translates into his painted works. By combining representational and figurative elements with abstract markings, Taylor constructs narrative frameworks that invite viewers to engage with his art on multiple levels.
Throughout his career, Taylor has exhibited his artwork extensively in solo and group shows across South Africa, as well as internationally in countries such as Australia, The Netherlands, the UK, and the USA. In 2013, his talent was recognized when he was shortlisted as one of Thames & Hudson's 100 Young Painters of Tomorrow. His work has garnered attention from private collectors around the world, including the prestigious Woodner Collection in the USA.
Taylor's artistic approach can be described as ironic, illustrative, and self-reflexive. He explores the interplay between personal and cultural knowledge, often employing humor and ridicule to communicate disarming messages. Through his art, Taylor aims to evoke a sense of shared humanity, encouraging viewers to reflect on their own experiences and perceptions.
Living and working in Cape Town, Michael Taylor continues to push the boundaries of his artistic practice, creating visually compelling works that merge drawing and painting techniques. His ability to seamlessly blend figurative and abstract elements, along with his thought-provoking narratives, solidifies his place as a significant figure in the contemporary art scene.
