Drawing on inspiration from sources as diverse as fairy tales and Shakespearean dramas to paintings by 'Great Masters' and 1960's pop culture, Mychael's prints reflect his passion for literature, theatre and film. Of his current work, Mychael writes 'The titles are an integral part of the process, narrative themes and an irreverent sense of humour run through all of my prints and paintings'.

In 2005, his print 'Waterloo Sunset' was selected for the Royal Academy summer exhibition.
