Micheal Haran R’87 studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL after leaving Worth and is now a multidisciplinary artist working in all types of materials. The themes of his work are wide-ranging and include abstract expressionism, abstract figurative or biomorphic and playful surrealism, highly coloured and full of motion, using a multitude of mediums.

As Micheal says, “I was never going to live an ordinary life after three years at Worth”, and he spent 2 and a half years living in Iquitos, Peru, studying Plant Spirit Shamanism, which had a very profound effect on his life. His son was born in Amazonia and he is very passionate about Amazonian and other Rainforest conservation. He has raised monies for Rainforest Trust, The Peru Mission and other ecological charities. In January 2020 he had a solo exhibition of paintings at The Tabernacle gallery in Notting Hill from which he gave 40% of sale proceeds to The Rainforest Trust and other charities.

Micheal now lives and works in West London. His painting ‘Flowers of Serenity’ was featured in Saatchi Art’s Chief Curator’s Summer 2023 Collection and he will be exhibiting 8 of his paintings at the Florence Biennale at Fortezza da Basso, Florence, Italy from 14-22 October 2023.
