Mike Tedder is a graduate of Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge with a passion for mixed-media collage, photography and design, with a studio based in Dover UK.
His work is inspired by many stimuli such as a dream, an emotion, language, something suddenly remembered, a song, or the experience of a particular moment. Exploring a juxtaposition of reality, fantasy, aesthetics and sensation, he examines some of the transient moments of real life experienced within both shared and autobiographical contexts.
As a young boy, he was enthralled by early experiments with his Kodak Instamatic camera, and photographic imagery remains an important part of his practice today. He is passionate about analogue film, in particular exploring the unpredictable nature of expired instant Polaroid film that still performs, despite the challenge of failing chemical reaction, and creates an image imbued with an ethereal beauty of its imperfection.
His postgraduate studies include ‘Enterprise, Entrepreneurship and Innovation’, ‘Project Management’ and ‘Event Design’ from the University Centre Folkestone.
He has been commissioned, published and his work exhibited in solo/group events throughout the UK, Europe, Australia & North America.
