Visual artist Michael Accorsi creates fine art projects in his studio rooted in a variety of media: from cinematic films to oil painting. His paintings reflect his travels and artistic influences in an expressionistic style. From cityscapes to figurative subjects, his work dynamic reveals his response to the subject more than a realistic depiction.
Being raised in a family of artists on the East Coast, Michael’s style is lyrical and full of emotion. "I love oil paintings that are painterly - full of daring brushstrokes and movement. My style is somewhat between the fierce realism of my grandmother Betty’s style, and the totally loose style of my mother Judy. I enjoy working with a variety of media, even collage to capture the statement of my subjects. I want my work to reveal more about my reaction to a place while still containing elements of realism and location."
Michael studied, practiced art at the University of Virginia, studied Hangul calligraphy and watercolor at the Daegu Institute in South Korea, and has continued his training in classes and workshops throughout the U.S. and even China in 2012. The most formative training came from his childhood. The eye for art and style instilled from his mother and grandmother, both accomplished artists shaped his expression in painting.
