A Coventry based artist making very large scale drawings which explore the impact of (only partially) imagined post-apocalyptic urban space.

Migrating from Nottingham in the early 1990s, Michael Snodgrass (aka Snod) is a Coventry artist producing rich and evocative monochrome drawings of textural depth that investigate themes of being lost, isolation, threat and vulnerability through scenes of post-apocalyptic industrial city landscapes. He is interested in presenting characters journeying through alternative, familiar worlds, experiencing danger and resilience. Recent works tie in with Grimm’s tales of character’s journeys to redemption (Hansel and Gretel) and places them away from “medieval” depictions into derelict spaces.
