Michael Flynn

I worked in the coalmines and carpet industry for 13 years before returning to education and studied Art. In 1995 I graduated with MA in Art History at the University of Glasgow. My work is greatly inspired by French painting and to some extent the German Expressionists. I like to use jazz and instrumental music to convey atmospheric moods and portray scenes with no, or at least few figures in the paintings, which symbolises no or few lyrics in a piece of music.

A video of some of my work can be seen here: Video
