Michael Speller: (England) After a successful career in business, Michael made a “change of life” decision to pursue his ambition to become a sculptor. He studied at Chelsea College of Fine Art and for the past 9 years has been working from his studio close to Tate Modern at The Sculpture Academy in Southwark, London.
His work sells to private collectors around the world. In his work Michael draws heavily from his own personal experiences, presenting his interpretation of the human condition. Our environment, our families, our neighbours, and the society we live in – all are interlinked and interdependent. As he explores the balance between conflicting forces and emotions, his work is visually striking and reflects a passion and enthusiasm for life.
Michael’s work lends itself to the large scale hence he has been sought to undertake a number of private and public commissions. The most recent of these being a 5 m tall bronze which stands as the centrepiece of a new London hospital unit in the borough of Newham and was unveiled by the Secretary of State for Health.
