This is the third artwork in my series on the consequences of climate change.  The weather event depicted in this artwork is a wildfire, an event that is  manifesting with increasing intensity and frequency as the planet warms.

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.
