Michael Alford

Born in 1958 - United Kingdom


Michael Alford is a figurative painter best known for his sensitive evocations of contemporary life. His paintings and drawings of human figures — male and female, clothed and nude — are highly sought-after for their combination of fine draughtsmanship, acute observation and sense of drama. Michael Alford is frequently commissioned as a portraitist of both individuals and groups.

Michael Alford’s recent assignments include two stints as an official war artist in Afghanistan, followed by two large ceremonial works for the Grenadier Guards. He is also a well known mural painter, whose work can be found in private homes, palaces, hotels and public spaces across Europe, North America and the Middle East.
