Announcement    Welcome to my shop. Here you'll find hand signed and individually numbered, high quality, fine art limited edition prints (usually runs of 25 or 30 to keep them exclusive) of a few of my original paintings. The prints are the exact same size as the original paintings with a 3cm border so moderately large, often 53x73cm. I plan to expand on my shop over time and so may begin to add original paintings and smaller, scaled down limited edition prints which will reduce their prices significantly! Watch this space!

My main muse is, as it was for L.S. Lowry and others, the city I was born and grew up in, Manchester UK, but occasionally I paint other subjects. A few of those are included here.

For more info, please see my 'about' page.

If you wish, you can visit my website at www.michaelgutteridge.com and see a selection of my work going back 20 years, media and press reports and news of exhibitions etc. Some of the paintings on my site I plan to make into smaller prints and put on etsy soon, please feel free to speed this up by making enquiries if you are interested in a particular work you may see there.

Live well!

Some Information About Michael Gutteridge Artworks

I was born in Manchester, England, birthplace of the industrial revolution. I began painting professionally in 2001, when, after submitting a painting in an Open Exhibition at Stockport Municipal Art Gallery, I was invited by them to present a full exhibition of 20 paintings the following year. Since then, I've continued to develop and explore my own unique vision.

I mostly paint unique, bizarre, sensually vibrant urban landscapes or cityscapes usually, but not exclusively, of the North of England, especially my home city of Manchester. These cityscapes eclectically pool diverse influences and involve spontaneous, often instinctive forms of distortion expressed via colour, proportion, perspective, innate harmonious relationships and an incongruous juxtaposition of styles. Sometimes, I am specifically trying to convey existentially disorientating feelings through these techniques and sometimes other types of emotion and general sensual vibrancy. I am excited by cities and try to capture some of that excitement. I try to walk a delicate balance between planning what I do and allowing a painting to have a organic life of its own. In my experience, nothing kills a painting as much as over thinking it and allowing the rational half of the brain to dominate.

My images have been used promotionally by the University of Lancaster for their government funded 'Mediating Marginalities' Project, by the University of Manchester, as the artwork for book jackets, as postcards by the Manchester Tourist Office, for wall murals, in an Indie music video and as a range of silk scarves. It has been featured in newspapers, magazines, television, BBC online, BBC radio (an interview!) and my paintings are held in private collections all over the world. The painting featured in my shop banner, of a Manchester pub scene, was shortlisted as one of the finalists from 12,000 entries for the Aesthetica Creative Arts Competition.
