Michael Scott


Michael Scott was born in Los Angeles, California. After attending the University of Santa Barbara Michael traveled through Europe and South America  as a musician experiencing many of the diverse cultural values of the western world.  Michael, a completely  self taught artist, then moved to New York in 2004.

Michaels earliest work, pop iconic(abstract portraits of rockstars) shows  the influence of artists like Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollack, and Natvar Bavsar whom michael befriended shortly after arriving in new york. In 2005 Michael began experimenting with new mediums and techniques. In 2006 he arrived at his signature style of " abstractism" integrating abstract and collage and embedding the implement of  a bill board like effect.

New Yorks muted metropolitan landscape shaped michaels work fleetingly, while its graphic subject matter left a lasting urban impression of the tracings of New yorks past and present. Michaels main goal with his new work is to create a positive exertion from each and every painting. Inside, underneath and atop his paintings are hidden and unhidden positive messages, along with the harmony and balance of color.

Michaels arrival to New York has brought an increasing recognition of his work along with several commissions for  murals. These commissions afforded Michael the opportunity to create color environments on a monumental and global scale. He is now  achieving financial success and critical acclaim amongst the art world. Michael resides in New york today enjoying his life as a living working artist. Michaels belief is: "The more we create out of love, the more love there will be".
