Michael’s artworks range from paintings, to printmaking to installation. In one current project, Michael is traveling around New Brunswick, going to protected natural habitats and creating paintings of each one. His painting style is smooth and panoramic, with a great attention to detail. In another painting project, the artist creates aerial views that really play with scale – are these views abstracted, extreme close-ups, or faraway macro images?

His woodblock print series Dans La Lune is especially charming – the works combine 50’s and 60’s advertising imagery with prints and different schematic drawings and diagrams. Check out these and many more works on Michael’s artist website: www.mcewing.ca
