Imogen & Michael
Michael and his twin brother were brought to the UK from Antigua in 1967, to reconnect with a mother they had known for their first six months and a father they had never met. They were seven years old. He remembers around age 9 being obsessed with painting and drawing to the point of going on to win many art prizes and primary and secondary school level. At age 13,having taken judo instruction after school with friends at a youth centre he had an epiphany. It came one evening with the discovery of an “Art room” at the centre, at the back of which someone was standing over a machine with their arm disappearing down into a mound of spinning clay…”it’s 3D you fool”He would go on to do a degree in Ceramics at Central School of Art in London, age 19.
