Michael Willis (b. 1987, England) is a interdisciplinary artist and designer, living and working in Melbourne, Australia. His practice encompasses graphic design, art direction, image-making, research, technology, motion, art, fashion, textiles, 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 practice 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 existence, biology, technology, eco-sytems and alternative states of consciousness where organic and extended realities co-exist.
