Painting of padlock on a coloured and rusty metal door.

Michael Doherty is a Belfast architect and artist working in buildings, pencil, charcoal, pen, conte stick, inks, watercolour, print, acrylic and oils. Also trying out some video, photography and installation.

This website deals with the two dimensional images I make. A lot of the work is the byproduct of observation, selection, memorising, editing, and understanding both the recorded objects themselves and how to compose and appropriately record them onto a two dimensional surface. I've loosely gathered them here under the title 'michaeldohertyart'.

Pictured is my piece 'A Line on a Map' which features in the 2018 Royal Ulster Academy annual exhibition.

The 2d and the 3d continually inform one another but If it's that other art, 'Architecture', that most interests you then take a look at our architecture practice website Doherty Architects
