Michael Bullock was born in London in 1918. He has devoted himself intensively to writing and visual art since his mid to late teens. In 1936 he visited the great Surrealist Exhibition at the National Gallery and has remained a committed Surrealist writer and artist ever since. This was followed by a prolonged visit to India, which also made a lasting impression on him that can be clearly seen in his work. He is the author of more than fifty works of poetry and fiction and two plays.
