Michael Hamson started his career as a field collector, making 46 trips into the most remote areas of New Guinea. He has supplemented this experience with Master’s degree in Oceanic and African art history from the University of California at Santa Barbara providing an academic and aesthetic foundation. In the last eleven years Michael has focused exclusively on sourcing his material from old collections in the US, Europe and Australia. He now uses the energy once devoted to field collecting to crisscross the globe aggressively hunting for the oldest and most beautiful Oceanic art fresh to the market.
