Here we highlight some of most popular artists and their work. This month we’re featuring Mick Rafferty. Rafferty is a British contemporary abstract painter. Although his work can be described as diverse, much of his recent portfolio has focused on how paint can act as a metaphorfor some human behavioural traits - such as being well mannered and cooperative - or wayward and dysfunctional. Mick is particularly interested in how commercial gloss paints “pour”, revealing how precise and behaved such paint can be - or alternatively, how random and undisciplined it can be. Mick demonstrates that this quite commercial, though possibly undervalued material, is ultimately be perfect for his very fluid, almost animated works. Mick has exhibited at multiple locations in the UK including high profile galleries in London.
