“I have been working very hard for a year building my technique creating a colourful new body of work based on dreams, then trying to capture them in vivid colour. I love how colours can make you feel and the power they have over our emotions. It has been a pleasure to create all this work and I have loved every minute every hour I have spent over the past year working on this exhibition,” he said .

Michael is well known in the city where he is a successful make up artist. “I am all self-taught and I started working in the make up and fashion industry over four years ago. I have always been an artists and have been painting and drawing all my life,” he said.

“Make up artistry can be transformative for people. It brings out how you feel on the inside out on the outside in a visual, creative and expressive way and that plays a huge part on your psyche,” he said.

Michael started his career as a make up artist with Brown Thomas in Dublin. He explained that art in itself can be a solitary way of life adding that working as a make up artist allows his sociable nature to flourish.

“It feels really good when someone is delighted with the end result and is wearing you art,” he said.

A native of Dublin Michael moved to the Marble City two years ago and works out of his studion on Friary Street.

He is available for commissions and also for make up work and body art. Michael Browne’s exhibition opens at The Front Lounge on Parliament Street in Dublin on October 3.
