Michael Newton is an artist located in Manchester, England.

My oil paintings explore aspects of MELANCHOLIA using traditional methods of oil paint on canvas and on wooden panels. I work initially from pen and ink drawings that combine elements of my own figurative drawing with my photographs and found images. Working directly onto the support with oil glazes, I use these subverted images as the basis for a loose and immediate style of painting. Consequently the oil paintings have a freshness of execution despite the melancholic themes.
