about this artist
Artist: Mike Bernard RI 
About the artist: HOME
North Devon

BACKGROUND AND TECHNIQUE
Mike finished his art training at the Royal Academy Schools after which he taught art in Southampton. Initially a classical landscape painter in oils, he evolved his splendid collage style trying to break the “artists’ block” students often get when faced with a white canvas. He suggested that they search the streets for appropriate printed litter and form a surface by glueing this on to the paper. So successful did this prove that he adopted the style as his trade mark multimedia style evolved.
Mike is a master of composition and colour juxtaposition with his scintillating studies of coastal harbours or London scenes
SUCCESS
Mike Bernard has an enormous following many of whom enjoyed memorable days when he used to give demonstration lectures. He has been elected to The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) and has staged numerous highly successful solo shows at Marine House.

COMMENT
There are few artists so adept at capturing the spirit of a small community with his instinctive sense of fine composition and spontaneous use of colour. There’s so much that only slowly reveals itself that the observer will be intrigued for years to come with the discovery of new and subtle points of detail.
