We came across the work of Michael Swaney a few times since the new year, as the artist is set to show at a few galleries we love in Europe, Blokker in Madrid and Krets in Malmo, Sweden. Swaney is part of a great group of Canadian painters, Neil Farber comes to mind, who have transitioned from character-based work to abstract paintings. Definitely keeping an eye on Swaney in the coming years...

Michael Swaney's drawings celebrate a playful emphasis on color, pattern, and line. His work is strange and renders the familiar in a manner that brings it into its own world filled with vibrant hues and bending perspectives.
