Michael Shapcott is a United States based artist from Connecticut. He studied illustration for two years before switching to fine arts at Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut, graduating in 2007 with a diploma in Fine Arts. Michael credits his education for basic technical experience but feels that only in breaking some of the traditional methods he was taught and experimenting on his own did he develop the confidence, unique voice and style he continues to expand upon today.

Michael is known for his daring color palette and emotionally charged portraits. He starts every piece with highly detailed graphite under drawings, soon after he paints with colorful washes in oil and acrylic paints. In addition to painting, Shapcott creates art videos that track the process of painting a painting and shows his unique style of working. We hope you’ll enjoy his beautiful pieces!
