Birthplace: Sikeston, Missouri, USA, 1944

Educated: University of Kansas - Graphic Art

Expertise: Stone Lithographs, Sculpture, Painting; Magic Realism

Michael Parkes is America's leading Magic Realist painter and printmaker. After college, he was appointed a lecturer in graphic techniques first at Kent State University and later in Florida. He taught at the university from 1965 to 1970. At the age of 26, he and his wife went on a study trip to Europe and Asia. Since 1975 Michael Parkes has lived and worked in Spain. Michael's style is a fluid coalescence of realism and phantasmal visions. His works are filled with imagery and symbolism from Greek mythology to Indian folklore. A master artist of figure and composition, Parkes uses a 1906 Heidelberg press to create his limited edition stone lithographs.
The stone Lithograph process is difficult to master. Its tedious nature and unpredictability can require original ideas to be changed several times. As a student Parkes was fascinated by different graphic techniques. He has now become extremely skilled in the intricate medium of color stone lithography.
