Dalston ex-teacher’s art on display
A former Dalston schoolteacher who gave up his job to pursue artistic dreams has his work featured in an art fair until Monday.
Upcoming artist Michael Worobec created the brightly coloured masterpieces which were chosen to form part of The Other Art Fair in his Hackney Wick studio.
He briefly taught textiles and art and textiles at Kingsland Secondary School, and helped get it out of special measures, before it closed in 2003.
The Edinburgh-born painter then went on to become Head of Art at an East Finchley comprehensive school for six years until he left in 2010 to become a full-time professional artist.
Mr Worobec explained that he gave up his teaching job to return to his first love: painting.
