Art of ordered calm


I’m Michael Garaway, an artist based near Reading, Berkshire, UK, and I’ve been making and showing my work since before the 1980’s, mostly with urban landscape as the subject.

As you look around this site you will find I’ve explored and experimented with a range of different approaches over the years, picking up a few awards along the way.

I'm very much into structure, organisation, systems, surfaces, textures, controlled colour and tone, and have a wider interest in the influence of technologies on the look of our lives and environments. My work is often seen as a much needed presentation of stillness, contemplation and ordered calm.

As well as traversing boundaries between various creative disciplines, I’ve also straddled the shift from analogue to digital creativity and back again, which led me into a rewarding teaching career.

Feel free to get in touch with any comments or queries on my contact page, where you can also sign up for my occasional newsletter to get advance notice of my events.

Thank you for visiting!
