About Michael

Michael Carini received his artistic training in Los Angeles, studying at Loyola Marymount University while simultaneously serving as an apprentice under respected artists Jane Brucker and Roland Reiss. Graduating at the top of his class in 2006 with honors including the Scholar of Distinction Award in Painting, Carini returned to his hometown in San Diego, where he currently maintains his studio. Exhibited and published both in the United States and internationally, Carini spent the summer of 2012 as the Artist in Residence for Alexander Salazar Fine Art.

Michael Carini’s creative visions will play with your senses and illuminate the human condition as he delves into the uncensored depths of his mind and invites you to catch a glimpse of the other side. It is a journey through his darkest dreams and highest hopes, all displayed before you in weaving blasts of light, color, and energy that find themselves trapped within a space that is seemingly boundless. The visions shared are done through a broad and deeply rooted filter of art history, philosophy, and literature as Carini rhythmically dances and makes music on the canvas through what he describes as a poetically alchemical process based upon the principals of equivalent exchange. It is the artist’s hope that you will completely lose yourself within these labyrinthine experiences, only to discover a new sense of self and emerge reborn.

Michael, you art has been a true inspiration to me. Even if your's art through paint & mine's is writing it really does speak to me. I had honoured you by dedicating a room to your art in my apartment. I call it 'inspiration room.' I just want you to know that your art is beautiful and please keep doing what you do.

I heard about Micheal's art from a friend involved the art community in California. I must say that I was not disappointed! There must be a deeper story to this artist....It shows in his work. There is passion and excitement and well as SOUL! Wonderful!
