Michael Taylor, born in Johannesburg is a South African artist living and working in Cape Town. Taylor produces works in painting, drawing, printmaking and ceramics. He has to date had 9 solo exhibition of which his recent Trophies was at Whatiftheworld Gallery, based in Cape Town; the gallery also represents Taylor.

Michael has a story, make that a few to tell and, through his work at WE especially in the monotype technique his characters and settings materialize in humourous acts, satirized scenarios and of course at the beach – a sucker for a ‘Tropiitone’ sunset is Michael. To comparatively sketch it out he arrives with a suitcase of stuff (well, not figuratively) and ready and open to the element of chance. Taylor has the illustrator in him and that means the suitcase is tightly packed and as he decides to unpack so too does a composition. It helps that the nature of Michael’s work has much to do with editing/selecting and layering – in terms of making monotypes he is able think of the final image as a succession of colour planes, negative areas waiting to be filled and at least the possibilities of adding to or taking away from existing flat planes. He is a consummate professional in his sensibility and approach, well suited to collaboration in the print studio and, has developed from initial projects. Michael Taylor knows what will work and what will ‘fail’ due to his being comfortable with the medium as he says, “let the medium do what it wants to do.”
