  Michael Bevilacqua
 
view selected works

Michael Bevilacqua combines an enthusiasm for pop culture with a sophisticated study of modern painting. His work is a lexicon of contemporary icons and logos, embracing among other things, music, fashion, and art. The paintings are a visual diary of his artistic influences, recording such things as rock album covers, fashion house logos, childrenís cartoon characters and images from celebrated contemporary paintings. There is no separation between high and low culture. The works are like time capsules funneled through the sensibility of someone who grew up in Northern California during the 70ís and 80ís. Bevilacqua is a painter as social sculptor.
