Michael Robinson

I'm know for bold colors and big ideas. As such, my art is largely an extension of my focus on the spiritual and metaphysical aspects of life. Though deeply spiritual in nature, I also have a fondness for satirical subjects that underscore my view of the nature of human existence that often is a form of divine comedy.

A former touring musician, I am a huge fan of contemporary hard rock because so many songs in this genre are highly motivational. I often name my paintings or inscribe them with song titles or quotations from meaningful lyrics that reflect my belief in always moving forward no matter what life throws your way.

I start my painting journey by creating what amounts to a lyrical abstraction that might sell on its own but for me is a very intriguing background. I then build the composition on top of this complex base. I believe this mixture of broad strokes and interesting details, many of them lurking just below the surface and only visible when close to the canvas, make for a more harmonious whole that separates my work from that of most contemporary painters today.
