This is the fourth painting in climate change series. Not all of the social issues addressed in my artworks are solely organic to the United States. Many, like climate change, are global in scope. Dozens of low-lying cities across the globe are at risk from increasing sea levels. One such city is Copenhagen and so Denmark's National Gallery serves in this artwork as a backdrop for highlighting the consequences of rising seas.

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.
