Portrait painter Michael Fullerton

From Arts on Sunday, 1:53 pm on 9 June 2013

Scottish painter Michael Fullerton creates portraits of politicians, political prisoners and people he considers to be unjustly accused. He's been at Auckland University as the Elam International Artist in Residence, gathering material for a series he wants to do on Kim Dotcom. Rather than paint from life, Michael photographed the internet giant and is now turning those photos into paintings. He has a pragmatic reason for working this way.
