About the Artist

Michael Azgour is an actively exhibiting artist, currently living between San Francisco and Krakow, Poland. His award-winning paintings have been exhibited in galleries across the United States and Europe and are part of dozens of collections.

Michael’s abstract figurative paintings focus on expressive and geometric abstractions of the figure and environment. He uses the medium of oil on canvas to talk about a very different media—photography—and the changing function of images in contemporary society. His unique process combines distortions in form and depth—as well as an emphasis on expressive paint application—to create visual ambiguity and a sense of mystery.

Michael currently teaches at Stanford University and the San Francisco Art Institute.
