Michael Geddis is an emerging Northern Ireland artist, who specialises in drawing. Graduating from Belfast School of Art in 2013, Michael’s work won the James White Prize for Drawing at the RDS Annual Student Awards in Dublin.

Formerly a Veterinary Surgeon for over 25 years, his work is inspired by the beauty of natural forms and microscopic structures. A recent development in Michael’s artistic practice is to draw on graphite coated museum quality glass sheets to produce beautiful artworks that appear to come to life when light shines through them.

‘Algal Bloom III’ is currently part of the collection of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
