This artwork was created to inform or remind that homelessness often results from structural forces and personal histories, circumstances over which we often have no or little control/choice.  The figures are of the same woman – at one time living comfortably but then subject to a drastic life disruption from an unexpected circumstance resulting in her homelessness.

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.
