Michael Forbes

March 01, 2012


Michael Forbes is a self-taught artist living in the Scottish Highlands who has been selling paintings since he was seventeen, taking up the art form full time in 1989. His work depicts dreamlike scenes of a bizarre, poetic world, described by filmmaker Terry Gilliam, one of Forbes' clients, as "surreal, mischievous, wryly sweet... and chockablock with wit and wonder."
