Artist Statement

Influenced by Social Realism, German Expressionism, and Japanese prints, (among others) the artist's work blends graphic, figurative painting with sweeping landscapes and nostalgic environments, that speak to the sensibilities of the human condition. Utilizing subdued colors, intense brush strokes, and detailed patterns, Misha creates thought provoking reflections of Americana culture that challenge convention and break down our false sense of security.

Theresa-Barbaro says: After interviewing Misha for LUXE IMMO magazine, I became even more acquainted with his creative expressions of his perspectives and viewpoints on a variety of political and social issues facing the world around us. His work encourages the viewer to think critically about many presumed idealistic realities in both a local and global sense. It is my great pleasure to nominate Misha for a group show at the Brooklyn Museum.
