The Fantastic Art of Mike Worrall

Mike Worrall (born 1942 in Matlock Derbyshire, UK) is an almost self taught artist and designer. His fantastic art - which sometimes reminds me the works of the Czech surreal painter Jacek Yerka - is featured in films such as Nate and Hayes and Alien 3. He moved in Australia in 1988, where he continued his career and sold paintings to Roman Polanski, among others. Polanski said that one of Worrall's works gave him the idea of making Macbeth.
He currently lives in Holgate, Australia, with his wife and sons.
Visit his site to see other beautiful paintings in great format.
