Micheal Sydney Moore is a 23-year-old oil painter based in London. His work centers around high-realism in portraiture. Due to the scale and detail of his work, the artist only produces 8-10 works a year.
He states: “Where I choose to apply paint thickly or turn form using a particular hue, are as intrinsic to the expressive nature of painting as the selection of a particular word is to a poet. To extend the metaphor; as in poetry, it is not the correct selection of words, as much as it is their ability to co-exist harmoniously with both a semblance of reality and the artists sentiments on the world – or in my case – the sitter present.”
