From Saturday 16th July to Sunday 14th August > “Wanderings of a Creative Mind” > an exhibition of artworks by Michael Crispin

Introduction to the artist

Hi my name is Mike Crispin,  I’m a 2d and 3d Artist, illustrator from the Oldham area. Married to a wonderful wife and a father to two beautiful daughters.

A brief overview of my art background.

My passion for art and creativity began as soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil or crayon. Drawing at every opportunity when not on my BMX or out in the fields and trees near home. Once in my teens I combined my passion for art, cars and how things worked (another two of my very early interests’) and used these as a basis of direction to take me through school then eventually onto Blackpool college to study Technical Illustration. Leaving college I went on, to work as a commercial artist, scenery, prop and mould maker for a local games and amusement machine manufacturer. The job role of over 20 years giving me the great opportunity to work within a small specialised team of skilled and experienced Joiners, Electricians and Engineers and myself (Commercial Artist) working with a multitude of different materials, tools and equipment.
Along side this job I also ran a small side line business for a couple of years where I was commissioned to create both private and commercial murals.

Introduction to the exhibition

‘Wanderings of a Creative Mind’ brings together a very small selection of the creative ventures undertaken over the last two decades by Mike Crispin, Founder of Crispin Art Design – Creative Mind Factory. The exhibition, is primarily here to show the varied designs that come under the broad term ‘ARTWORK’ and hopefully serves to interest and inspire the viewer to ‘think outside the box’ when discovering their own creative spark. This exhibition presents a wide variety of subject matter, coupled with a varied mix of techniques and materials, formed and displayed in both 2D and 3D creations.

This is both due to my background as a Commercial artist and my love for working with the many different materials and tools available to me. Whether I’m sanding a piece of wood, cutting sheet metal, painting or using a computer to produce designs and artwork, the coolest part to all these ventures, adventures and projects being the creativity and freedom of expression.
The majority of the artwork I currently produce comes from both experimentation using predominantly recycled materials and what I call “Mind drift”. Mind drift is a state of relaxation where doing art and listening to music becomes an almost meditative experience with no outcome, expectation or deadlines, allowing me to relax and let my subconscious take me on a journey.
My artwork approach is inspired by many different styles and artists both past and present, personal life experiences and my interest in science and the workings of the mind.I like to think of creativity as a fun way of problem solving. Mike.
