Michael C Hayes is a professional artist based in the U.S. who creates astonishing fantasy art paintings. There’s a wonderful timeless feel to Michael’s artwork, with a real sense of composition, lighting and structure to each piece. Beautifully painted in oils these fantasy paintings explore everything from historical heroines and heroes to the strange and macabre. The figure work and drawing that underline these paintings is absolutely superb and it’s no surprise the artist has been featured in the fantasy art publication ImagineFX.
