Michael Cunliffe is a British artist and illustrator who grew up on a diet of comics, monster movies, and paperback fantasy and sci-fi novels.  Going on to gain a degree in Illustration from Falmouth College of arts, his work has been used in games, genre fiction, and music festivals.   Now living in the North East of England with his wife and a busy house of children and pets, he creates dark artworks in oils and digital paint and works to help others explore the relationship between their creativity and mental health at North Tyneside Art Studio.

A member of the Dark Art Society Cooperative, his personal works balance the automatic and pareidolia-based techniques to uncover imagery that can then be rendered with an illustrative approach to technique and narrative.
