Hannes Michanek creates inspiring, large-format landscape paintings, which recall early Renaissance conceptions of the world. His compositions are wild collages of landscapes populated by a myriad of figures and suggestive of his native country of Sweden. His imagery seems to be full of references to historical events and figures.
In 2008, Michanek was awarded a fellowship from Dresdner Bank for a residency in Dubai.
