Mike Janes worked in the building industry for many years, and has first hand experience of the behaviour and characteristics of concrete, plaster, bitumen, render and other building materials. These inform his artistic expression when art making, many of his shapes and textures are directly inspired by the movements and skills integral to the process of construction. In his 40s, he obtained a BA (Hons) Fine Art in Context from the University of the West of England. Drawing upon his years of experience as a manual worker, Mike works now mainly using building materials creating works both for the interior and exterior. If the key to art is to see the beauty that other people miss, then these sculptures work wonders. Having spent many a year in the building trade, Mike Janes is now fulfilling his dream and selling his wonderful artwork. By using materials traditionally found on the building site, this artist forges the industrial with the metaphysical and creates incredible art objects out of stone and steel. These stunning works combine the ancient, classical tradition with occasional flashes of pop sensibility and always succeed in being aesthetically incredible sculptures. Other works take a more abstract approach and seek to invoke the eternal with their organic shapes and symbolic references. As well as creating strong visual images, his work also contains subtle indicators of an observant mind, taking in the contemporary world and using it to make art. more...
