Michael Carlo is a printmaker, draughtsman and watercolour artist. He has lived and worked in the same Suffolk village since the late 1970s. He has specialised in landscapes which document changes in the local scenery over nearly 30 years. His technique has varied over this time - first establishing a reputation for his screen prints and moving on to specialise in woodcuts. His work has become progressively more abstract throughout his career. He was recommended as a poster artist to London Transport by his former tutor Edward Bawden.
