THE ART OF MICHAEL BROLEY

ARTIST BIO

I SEE THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY. I'M A CONTENT CREATOR. AN ARTIST. A CITIZEN DEVELOPER. A MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE. OH AND I MAKE THINGS.

 

I'VE BEEN TAKING PICTURES SINCE I WAS A CHILD. I WORKED AS A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURING HOCKEY FOR THE BRAND BALLHOCKEY.COM FOR OVER A DECADE.

IN 2015 I MOVED TO TORONTO, FELL IN LOVE WITH THE CITY AND BEGAN A NEW ADVENTURE. I PICKED UP A CAMERA AND STARTED @THRUMIKESLENS.

IN 2016 NARCITY TORONTO CALLED ME ONE OF THE BEST 13 PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE CITY. I DON'T NECESSARILY AGREE BUT IT'S THE NICEST THING ANYONE HAS SAID ABOUT ME. ACTUALLY YOU CAN CLICK HERE TO READ A BUNCH MORE NICE THINGS SAID ABOUT ME FROM PEOPLE I WORK WITH (FEEL FREE TO ASK THEM!).

IN 2017 I AM FOCUSED ON PORTRAIT AND CONCEPTUAL PHOTOGRAPHY. MY GOAL IS TO EXPLORE MENTAL HEALTH, ADDICTION, VICES, SIN AND BEAUTY. I AM DRAWN TO LEADING LINES, SYMMETRY & PATTERNS. I LOVE BURSTS OF BOLD COLOR. I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. I ALSO LOVE TAKING PICTURES OF PIGEONS. MY MENTAL HEALTH IS REFLECTED IN MY WORK. TO ME ART IS THERAPY.

FROM TIME TO TIME I AM COMMISSIONED BY FAMILIES OR CORPORATE PEOPLE TO CAPTURE THEM LOOKING THEIR BEST. I ALSO ENJOY WORKING WITH NON PROFITS AND OFFER SPECIAL RATES FOR EVENT COVERAGE.

I WILL BE HAVING MY FIRST SOLO EXHIBIT IN AUGUST 2017 IN TORONTO.
