Michael Earll attends Project Ability's Create programme.
Michael is a painter and filmmaker. As well as attending our visual arts classes and exhibiting in our Young Talent show, Earll wrote and directed his own short film, 'Robert Smith: an Autobiography', a "mockumentary" on the lead singer and principal songwriter of the 1970s band, The Cure.
Michael Earll was one of Project Ability's artist in residence in 2011. During his residency, Michael spent a focused month creating bold colourful paintings, inspired by his music heroes: painting images from bands, musicians and gigs with Pink Floyd, The Flaming Lips and Oasis subject to his transformations. The atmosphere, emotion and excitement of watching live bands is what has driven his practice and he states that the finished work is as much about music as it is about image making. Popular scenes from iconic bands become transformed with colliding energetic fluorescents mixed with darker palettes reminiscent of the clash of stage lights and murk you would experience at a gig.
