Baltimore Love Project
Michael Owen is a contemporary painter who’s work is found across
galleries as well as the streets of the United States.
Visually, Michael’s work uses bold, graphic imagery to pull the viewer
into the piece, to divulge softer and intimate messages and metaphors.
While Michael’s work could be classified as figurative, it’s subtle
compositional details and deep messages ring true of a more conceptual
genre. Typically, less is more in Michael’s work as he employs
minimalism to access a wider audience, allowing more room for each
viewer to insert their own story.
Michael is the creator and lead artist of the Baltimore Love Project,
a self-initiated project of 20 love-themed murals spread evenly
throughout the city. Michael is also the artist behind one of the
nation’s longest murals, located in Baltimore, Maryland. Currently
residing in Baltimore, Michael lives and works as an artist in
residence at The Creative Alliance, in the historic Patterson Theater.
