This is another artwork from my series on climate change.  The primary figure is from an artwork entitled "Hard Lessons."  She serves, then, to question individuals and policymakers, alike, how many severe weather events it will take before they accept climate change as a real and dangerous phenomenon.  The artwork is not varnished but the lower third is covered in pouring medium, a reflective varnish-like material.

Getting to Know Michael

Michael’s work focuses on issues of social justice and the environment. He selects a subject through contemplative meditation and begins researching the topic. Then Michael sources imagery, digitally manipulates it, and creates stencils. The artist uses spray paint to bring his scenes to life, employing heavy symbolism to illustrate his ideas. Each element of a composition holds meaning. Stylistically, Michael’s figures are inspired by 18th and 19th Century art history yet treated with a street-art makeover.
