Michael Cain aka Gnashing Teeth is an artist and illustrator currently working in Melbourne, Australia. Influenced by a love of nature and how nature interacts with human kind, his paintings depict birds, animals and plants juxtaposed with human elements and pop culture references. Michael’s unique, self taught aesthetic has evolved from his career as a graphic designer, creating a balance between loose strokes, detailed textures and engaging colour palettes. He has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and has private commissions residing in collections around the world.
House of Roulx is happy to present Michael Cain's "Poison Jar" series. In the artist's own words: "Growing up in Australia means regular encounters with venomous and dangerous insects and animals. 'The Poison' Jar series is inspired by the common childhood practice of catching insects in jars and explores the notion of what it could be like if other more dangerous animals could be caught that way."
