Enigmatic And Dreamlike Oil Paintings by Mike Worrall

Mike Worrall
Mike Worrall is a talented British self-taught fine artist and painter who was born in 1942 in Matlock Derbyshire and currently based on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. Mike creates impressive oil paintings showcasing dreamlike surreality hang in private collections and gallery shows worldwide.

As a child he was greatly intrigued by paintings that contained a dream-like narrative of “some sought of mystery element.” Worrall has been painting since the early 1960's. "I still retain the basic technique and style developed in these early years", he says.
I am committed to exploring the subconscious and I like Paul Delvaux and Max Ernst amongst others. I've worked in the feature film industry as an Ideas Artist. I was told by Roman Polanski that a painting of mine he had, gave him the idea of making the film Macbeth. He based the second scene on the painting. I have works in the collections of Victor Lownes, Alan Price of the Animals, Roman Polanski, Nicholas Roeg, Vincent Ward, Alex Proyas and many others.
