About the Artist
Michael Azgour is an actively exhibiting visual artist and California native, who is based in San Francisco and Krakow, Poland. His paintings have been exhibited in galleries in the US and Europe and are part of numerous public and private collections around the world.

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 speak about contemporary photography and the changing function images play on our lives. His lengthy and unique process combines realistic painting techniques with distortions in form and depth, calling into question the basic components of visual representation.

Azgour teaches art and design courses at San Francisco Art Institute's Public Education program and Stanford University’s Architectural Design and Continuing Studies programs. more>
