Michael Goro is the third visiting artist to take up residency at the ELP studio. Brought up in Soviet Russia, Michael is now based in the USA. He has lived and worked all over the world and has won multiple awards internationally.
Michael presented a selection of his prints, which combine etching, engraving, drypoint and photo-etching techniques. His large-scale, powerful images of the urban environment draw on his experiences of spending time in such cities as Buenos Aires and Chicago. He often incorprates elements of architectural drawing and old master images which reflect on his upbringing in St Petersburg where his architect father would take him every Sunday to the Hermitage museum.
