Michael Anthony Nisperos is an abstract and figural expressionist. He has organized his paintings both chronologically and thematically, which reflect his attraction to modern life. His ambitious works offer a fresh vision into the meaning of the human experience. Throughout his energetic imagery, he has captured the elusive subjects of emotion. His paintings and drawings are highly attuned to contemporary culture. Fascinated and influenced by primitive artifacts he addresses every brush stroke with passion and desire.
Diversity of subjective and non-subjective images combined with Michael’s hatching away layers of paint with his palette knife reveals its eternal life. Michael analogizes his technique as image, which is released for its first breath of air. We are the witnesses of the recorded process, taking part in Michael’s discoveries and universal questions addressed in each piece. Michael believes that through his painting awaits the answer to his creative balance of expressionism.
Nisperos’ works are presentations of multifaceted expressionism. “…Sculptures of canvas” they have been called. His work can be found in private and corporate collections all over the world and are exclusive to Artworld of Sherway in Canada.
