Michael Morgan RI has built a reputation as one of the countryís most popular and
innovative painters in watercolour. The extraordinary images he creates have struck a
universal chord with collectors and lovers of art, so much so that his exhibitions
invariably sell out within hours of opening. His paintings are held in private and public
collections nationally and internationally, and have illustrated, or been featured in,
numerous publications, among them Michael Morgan RI and 80 @ 80 Ė The Paintings of
Michael Morgan RI.
He has based his approach to picture making on Goetheís simple
advice that the art of painting is to see beyond the everyday familiar vision of things.
Michael is a Member of the prestigious Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and
a Founding Academician of the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts. He
holds both the RI Medal for his outstanding work as well as their Roland Hilder
Landscape Prize. He has been invited to show his work in London at the watercolour
exhibition at the Royal Academy and at the Royal Watercolour Society, as well as
exhibiting annually at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours.
His work is
represented by the prestigious gallery Marine House at Beer and every one of his solo
exhibitions held there since 1998, has been a sell out; a remarkable feat by any standards.
His work is in private collections throughout the
UK and internationally.
