MICHAEL AYRTON WAS BORN IN YORKSHIRE but spent his early childhood in northern Iraq. After attending school in England, he spent many years living abroad and lived in France for some 25 years before returning to England in 2018. He now lives in Cranbrook, Kent.
He became fascinated by non-objective painting in 2010 and subsequently held two successful exhibitions in France. He remains committed to non-objective themes which, in general, take nothing from visual reality but rely on lines, shapes, forms, colours and textures
