Eric Michael is a contemporary artist exploring the use of various materials and iconography as he creates thought-provoking images that address an array of issues affecting humanity. Nearsighted and color blind, he examines pre-existing canons through a distinct lens as he  seeks to bring a new perspective to social-economic and political paradoxes.

He was born and raised in the humble streets of Caricuao, a district of Caracas, Venezuela. In 1995 he migrated to the United States in search of the coveted American Dream. Growing up, he worked hard to adapt to his new home without losing sight of his roots. The internal struggle of bridging cultural differences without undermining either one’s significance, created the foundation for his work.
