Michael CARSON ✿


''My work is first and foremost figurative studies. It's what I like to paint, my biggest challenge and my greatest payoff. My nondescript surroundings help me create a mood or a story that I am trying to relay through my painting. Inspiration comes from architectural interiors as well as fashion and my work allows me to explore and explain this side of myself. Seeing how the work evolves, the subtle and the drastic differences, and looking forward to the future is what keeps me painting. I view a painting as a success when I take from it something new that follows me into my next work. It's just about learning to become a better painter.'' - Michael Carson -



















Michael Carson was born in 1972 in Minneapolis, MN.  He graduated from the Minneapolis Institute of Art and Design in 1996.  Working as a graphic Artist, he painted his first painting three years after graduating from college.  He knew he had found his calling and in 2001, started painting full time.
   Influenced by the paintings of Toulouise Loutrec, John Singer Sargent, Norman Rockwell, Malcolm Liepke, and Milt Kobayashi, Michael Carson is primarily a figurative Artist who likes to tell a story.  His figures usually find themselves in bars, nightclubs, cafes, and jazz clubs; even at home in intimate settings.
   His volition is to emphasize relationships of color and light and allow the texture of his brush stroke to move the viewer’s eye through the art.  “I like the fact that the face can be such a subtle subject and one brush stroke can be the difference in the feel of the entire piece.
