About the Artist
A California native, Michael Azgour currently works between San Francisco and Krakow, Poland. His paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe and are part of dozens of collections, including a recent commission by Stanford's Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
Michael’s abstract figurative paintings focus on expressive and geometric abstractions of people and places. He uses paint to speak about contemporary photography and the changing role digital images have in our lives. His unique process combines realistic painting techniques with abstraction, calling into question the basic components of visual representation.
Michael returns to the San Francisco Bay Area yearly to teach visual art and design courses at Stanford University's Architecture and Continuing Studies programs and at the San Francisco Art Institute. more>
