Somerset based artist and Falmouth BA(Hons) Fine Art graduate Michael Cox will soon be exhibiting ‘New Works‘ at Art Represent, London, E2 0JD. Opening from 28 October until 1 November Michael will be collaborating with another graduate artist, James Briggs.
During Michael’s third year at Falmouth, he was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016. As part of the touring exhibition Michael’s work has already been exhibited at the launch exhibition at Bluecoat, Liverpool, forming part of the Liverpool Biennial.
Following the success at Liverpool, Bloomberg New Contemporaries featuring Michael’s piece ‘De Beauvoir, 2015‘ will move on to London, exhibiting at the ICA from 23 November 2016 until 22 January 2017.
Michael has previously exhibited in London, most recently as part of a curated show selected by critic and curator Sacha Craddock and Falmouth Associate Lecturer Jesse Leroy Smith. Selected artists were chosen from the BA(Hons) Fine Art final year student cohort and the exhibition took place at the Underdog Gallery, London in July 2016.
Michael’s work has also been featured recently as part of a 2016 graduate piece for the ‘It’s Nice That‘ platform, which also featured him six months before he completed his studies at Falmouth (Here). Michael discusses his Somerset countryside childhood and the influences this has had on his urban style of painting, the highlights of studying the BA(Hons) in Fine Art at Falmouth University and his future plans.
