Christopher Mike’s work centres on the real world: the emotional highs and lows, chance encounters with interesting people, the personal experiences and events that indelibly stain our memories to shape the people we become. His work sets out to capture these events and translate them into visual messages that instantly resonate with the viewer.

Each painting is an authentic expression of a time or place, emotion or event, reflecting how our moods and feelings are informed by the lightest lights, the darkest darks and the intermediate tonal shades of everyday life.

Paintings are primarily made in oils using methods, materials and techniques that have changed little since the earliest days of figurative painting.
