Michael BEVILACQUA
(b. 1966, American)
Known for combining high and low culture through elements of painting, drawing, graphic design, animation, and collage, Michael Bevilacqua characteristically works in a saturated palette, covering his glossy canvases with brand logos and doodles. Stylistically influenced by Pop and Color Field Painting, he is also technically indebted to Andy Warhol for using screen-printing as a brush.

Michael Bevilacqua attended Long Beach State University and Santa Barbara City College, later continuing his studies at the Cambridge College of Art and Technology in Great Britain. Bevilacqua has exhibited internationally including solo shows in Beijing, Copenhagen, Milan, Tokyo, Madrid, Barcelona, and New York. He has also exhibited in group shows at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; Deste Foundation, Athens, Greece; The Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix, AZ; and The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield, CT. His work is in numerous public collections including The Mitsuni Collection, Tokyo, Japan; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; Deste Foundation, Athens, Greece; Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo, Norway; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and The Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX.
