About the Artist
Michael Azgour is an artist native to California, currently working between San Francisco and Krakow, Poland. His paintings have been exhibited in galleries across the US and Europe and are part of numerous 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 painting process combines distortions in form, depth, and an emphasis on paint application to create visual ambiguity and mystery.

Michael teaches art and design courses at Stanford University and the San Francisco Art Institute. more>
