Mike Janes is a UK builder turned artist who spent many years in the building trade learning about concrete, plaster, bitumen, render and other materials.
When he left the building trade he obtained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in Context from University of the West of England. He mainly uses building materials to create his works for interiors and exteriors.
His studio is in a former quarry in Weston-Super-Mare. In his works he expresses a wide range of techniques, using different finishes and treatments.
Jane's career path has taken many different paths over the years but it wasn't until his 40's that he spent more time sculpting, completing his degree.
Through colour and texture, he explores scientific and philosophical interpretations in an abstract form.
