Michael Gordon is a self-taught street artist, who was until recently homeless on the streets of Belize City. Born in 1966 in a poor neighborhood of Belize City, he has spent much of his life living on the street, interrupted by interludes in jail or mental institutions. He began drawing and painting only since the early 1990s. His first works were drawings in pencil on scraps of cardboard - odd portraits of people he saw on the street. Most of his early subjects were fellow Rastafarians.
