About The Artist: Mike Juggins, UK
Artist Mike Juggins is a community artist, filmmaker and educator based in Devon, UK. He studied Fine art at UWE in Bristol, graduating with a BA Honours – Art in a Social Context, in 1999. Being a dyslexic himself, Mike has a greater understanding and appreciation for the dyslexics, their strengths and weaknesses. He chose to focus on the ability rather than the disability of this disadvantaged group through his creative works.
Mike has lectured internationally on the issue of dyslexia and has a positive outlook on the subject. His written and illustration work about dyslexia has been published widely and his inclusive film work shown across the globe, including the London DisABILITY film festival and Chan 4.
However, Mike’s first love is painting. Recently, he exhibited his paintings at the Tate Modern London and Buckfast Abbey Devon. He also held his first Solo Art Exhibition in Singapore, at The Arts House, in November 2013.
Being a dyslexic himself, Mike has a greater understanding and appreciation for the dyslexics, their strengths and weaknesses. He chose to focus on the ability of this disadvantaged group to help them excel in their artistic inclination and be a contributor of our society.

‘The Union’ is a breakthrough piece for Artist Mike. As what he said while creating this piece of art, ‘I wanted to make lighter – brighter work that offered hope. The build…for weeks I was watching and drawing birds flying and despairing at the ways of the world…This piece is true two-handed visual jazz with hope embedded.The need to believe in a brighter future is vital.’
