George Michael – Mike Edwards

George Michael by Mike Edwards. It is signed and numbered from an edition of 50 and measures 83x83cm. Printed on Somerset Velvet 330gsm paper with decked edges. A portrait of legendary icon George Michael made solely from a readable mix of random snippets of lyrics from George Michael and Wham’s most popular songs. The golden glow of the artwork reflecting the warmth of Wham’s heyday with songs like
‘Club Tropicana’ – whilst the cool thoughtful expression hints at George Michael’s later work which included themes supporting human rights.

Mike Edwards is an established artist based in Brighton UK. Well known for his portraits made of text – Mike recently completed a major portrait of Lord Attenborough made from the names of Hollywood stars – now on permanent display at the new Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts in Brighton.

Mike’s work is in collections all over the world – including the collections of Roger Taylor, Zoe Ball and the late publisher Felix Dennis. David Bowie signed Mike’s unique typographic portrait of Aladdin Sane – which went on to raise phenomenal funds for charity at auction.

An exceptional painter – Mike started out as a professional artisan artist before developing his own body of work. Amongst many other things, he’s created a stage set for rock band Blur and produced commissioned artworks for Bacardi, Budweiser and Urban Outfitters.

Mike continues to push boundaries in new paintings currently in progress in his studio in central Brighton.
