Mike Moor is a printmaker and painter living and working in West Yorkshire. Born 1966 in Stockport, Mike studied in Grimsby and at the Cheltenham School of Art where he specialised in painting and printmaking; he subsequently gained a Master of Arts Degree at Bretton Hall College.
Having travelled widely, Mike now lives in Otley, West Yorkshire with his wife. His art reflects an appreciation of printmaking history and of humanists such as Goya, Redon and Arthur Boyd. He is known for his mysterious, humanist and sometimes darkly comic work.
“The vitality of Moor's work lies in his ability to blend abstraction and figurative work within a complex metaphorical framework and, in doing so, create images of indelible psychological power.” Andy Breslin, Chairman of the Leeds Art Fair.
