  • About the artist
    Born in London, Michael (Mike) Hale studied at Norwich School of Art (1952–56), and the Royal Academy Schools, London (1956–60). A pioneering, and largely overlooked, screenprinter, Hale worked as a master printing technician at Kelpra Studio, set up by wife Rose Kelly and husband Chris Prater in Kentish Town in 1957. He later taught at art schools and colleges including Bath Academy, Winchester School of Art, Strasbourg College of Art and was Head of the Printing Department at Leicester Polytechnic (today de Montfort University). Hale exhibited with Tom Phillips at the AIA Gallery in 1966 and was one of the artists included in the Arts Council exhibition, 'Eight English Printmakers' (1970).
