Mike Doherty is an artist based in Leith, specialising in portraiture, cityscapes and modern abstract work.

Originally from Fife, Mike Doherty is a self-taught artist based in the heart of Leith.

Having worked for 20 years, in many different jobs – the decision was made to pursue the dream of being a full-time artist.  

Mike’s work is powerful and intense - whether it’s the re-interpretation of city skylines, unique portraiture, brooding inks, symbolism, or the freedom of abstract painting.

His main influences are modern classics, (Matisse, Magritte, Ernst, Dali), pop-culture, film, music and graphic novella.

An artist to watch closely, his powerful and striking artwork is already gathering momentum, with future exhibitions in Edinburgh and Berlin already confirmed for 2017.
