Michael Dix is a contemporary artist and designer based in Dundee, Scotland.   Having studied Interior and Environmental Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, he graduated in 1998.   Since then Michael has successfully launched his own Interior and Architectural Services practice, DIX Design. 
Michael has designed everything from staircases made entirely of glass to his own apartment in the engine room of an old jute mill.

Architecture and design are clear influences in his artworks especially through an understanding of size and scale and how to alter our perception of them.
A white background is often present in the artist’s work.  This serves to add both mystery and infinite space. White space allows fine shadow work to be explored and suggested.   Drastically altering the scale and presentation of certain objects such as the Bumble Bee creates interesting aesthetics.  

‘Scale’ forms the central core of the artist’s work, with concentrated, articulate, complex pieces of nature being produced over pristine white backgrounds, ordinance survey maps, and original 19th Century architectural etchings.

Michael has built a reputation for his hyper real, purified, idolised visions of a variety of Pollinators. Each piece is designed to present a view of often overlooked beings, carefully positioned over scale-less backgrounds.
