Michael Willis (b. 1987, UK) is an interdisciplinary artist, designer and art director, living and working in Melbourne, Australia. His practice expands across multiple fields of design, art direction, image-making, research, technology, motion, fashion, textiles, art, digital and new media.

Michael has worked commercially for 10+ years in partnership with global brands and independent labels providing design, direction and art services for contemporary Music, Fashion and Culture.

Autonomously, Michaels art seeks to explore deep inter-connected patterns and relationships found in nature and synthetic worlds. His work is a living dialogue between these environments; tracing human consciousness, biology,  technology, ecology and alternative states; where organic and extended realities co-exist.
