Michael Jeremy English was born at Bicester, Oxfordshire, on September 5 1941 and educated at boarding school before going on to Ealing School of Art, west London, where he studied under some of the leading British avant garde artists of the day.
After graduating in 1966, he embraced the hippy movement that was then starting to hit London. He painted the shop fronts of two of the most famous boutiques of the era, Hung On You and Granny Takes a Trip, both in Chelsea. With Nigel Waymouth (a partner in Granny Takes a Trip), he also produced psychedelic posters under the name Hapshash & the Coloured Coat. Some of the posters were used to promote gigs by bands such as Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and Soft Machine.
