Michelle Hold is a German painter, who today lives and works near Milan, Italy. Her often large-scale abstract paintings are explorations of space, movement and freedom, as she captures the essence of feelings, emotions and the invisible energy that pervades the universe.
A Multi-Dimensional Practice
Hold’s artistic career consists of a multitude of significant turning points - she studied architecture in Austria, was a successful fashion model in Paris and New York, studied textile design in London, subsequently working actively in Milan before finding her feet in abstract painting. Each experience has added a new dimension to her paintings, which embody the structured layering of architecture and a trained understanding of the minute differences in colour hues.
