Naomi at Hope CoveIn demand, the unmistakable Michael Strang

Briton Spotlights by Ginny Kay

WEST BRITON - July 17 1997


These contrasting paintings, full of life and vitality, could only be by Michael Strang.

His style is unmistakable, with its thick furrows of paint depicting dandelions in bloom and the youngest of his four daughters fishing in Hope Cove.

The prolific artist, who lives at Gulval, near Penzance, seems to have hit the jackpot of the art world. "Things seem to be starting for me - I am now being approached and asked to display my work, rather than having to do all the asking myself," he said.

His painting of Hayle Harbour at sunset has been chosen for display in the Royal Academy, London. He also has two exhibitions currently showing in Cornwall; nearly 200 paintings at Camborne School of Mines and a selected 25 pieces at the Tregenna Castle Hotel, St Ives.

Even with so much happening, Michael has many more hopes and dreams. "I have hundreds of ambitions left, but my main one is to continue with my painting " he said.

Anyone wanting to see Michael Strang's work, can do so until the end of August at the Camborne School of Mines, and until autumn at the Tregenna Castle Hotel.
