About & Policies
AboutMichael Cowell is a Commercial Artist based in Nottingham, England working in ink, paint, print, and digital media.
He has produced limited edition hand printed gig posters for bands as diverse as The National, Kyuss, High on Fire, Dandy Warhols and Queens Of The Stone Age, whilst also illustrating and designing music packaging for a wide selection of other signed and unsigned groups.
This work has led him to participate in and co-curate more than fifty exhibitions in the UK, Europe and the USA, and see the recognition of being included in coffee-table hardback books on the history of art and music, be on TV about it, and get asked his opinions about things, as if they matter.
If you have some ideas for a project and are interested in having him smear his skewed understanding of the world all over them, definitely drop us an email.
Print & Shipping policy
The majority of the items for sale are screen printed by hand. Screen printing is a method of reproducing and creating artwork that dates back a thousand years. Each one is unique, not only in the fact that it’s a signed and numbered limited edition but also that it has its own little quirks and imperfections. Michael prints all his work himself. Frankly, he could be better at it but every effort has been made to accurately represent the pieces available.Screen printed pieces are shipped in roll tubes and protected by craft paper. Smaller items in a hardback envelope or jiffy bag. Original artwork and special items in the custom packaging they require. Every effort is made to ensure their safety but we cannot be held responsible for items damaged or lost in transit. If this is a concern, don’t hesitate to contact us to work out what we can do about insurance, tracked shipping, or anything else we can do to support.
