Sunti World Art Gallery proudly introduces the work of Edward Michell and his abstract application of natural elements.
One of North America’s most unique and dynamic contemporary artists, Edward Michell paints with the “guts” of the land. His palette incorporates oil sands, Texas tar, Yukon gold, Nevada silver, and crushed diamonds from Tiffani owned Ekati Diamond Mine in Northern Canada. Each work of art requires 18 months of curing his multi-layered textures and delicate glazes and his natural paints are extracted from raspberries, blueberries, beets, grass, and leaves. Edward’s unprecedented composition of natural elements results in stunning masterpieces, echoing the history of human expression and fuses ancient cave paintings with the Renaissance and the New World. Indeed, Edward’s dramatic abstracts display a mesmerizing richness that evokes the colorations and patinas of another era.
Highly sought after, Edward’s art was featured in a nationwide media promos tour in 2018 that resulted in seven commissions from some of the biggest museums in the country. With a four-year waiting list on commissioned work, art critics predict that Edward’s prices will “hit a 15-20-fold increase once the announcement of the museum commissions are released to the public.” Edward’s solo shows frequently sell out, and his work is acclaimed in North America, Europe and Asia.
