Mike Staniford

Contemporary Abstract Artist

Mike Staniford is a contemporary Australian artist, inspired by the bold colours of nature and the celebration of its shapes and forms. Mike’s paintings are intuitive and gestural and seek to reinterpret the landscape, distil down its complexity and eliminate the unnecessary.

“My paintings are a result of engaging in a dialogue with the landscape. Refiguring the geographical elements, playing with the compositional structure and keeping the geometry rich and varied, regardless of the literal proportion of form.”
