Michael Nisperos is an abstract and figurative expressionist. His works offer a fresh vision into the meaning of the human experience, capturing through his energetic imagery these elusive figures in motion. Michael has always been fascinated and influenced by primitive artifacts and every brush stroke captures these with passion and desire. There is a diversity with his subjects and these images come to life in his paintings. Michael uses a hatching technique with his palette knife that uncovers the layers of paint and reveals the life within each piece. We are the witnesses that see this process, we take part in Michael's discoveries as we look at each piece. Michael believes that through his painting awaits the answer to his creative balance of expressionism.
