Mike Kowalski

Mike is an award-winning artist with an international following. He is a Signature Member of National Watercolour Society (NWS) and American Watercolour Society (AWS), and teaches at the Victorian Artists Society in Melbourne. In 2015, Mike won the coveted Silver Medal of Honour at the 148th AWS International Exhibition in New York. Underpinned by sure draftsmanship, a firm grip on perspective and a fine eye for colour and value, Mike’s brush work is animated and direct. Working within the natural constraints of plein air – limited time, shifting light and unpredictable conditions – the artist creates engaging compositions that involve the interplay of shapes and colour.
