Michael Azgour specializes in abstract-figurative painting. He received his M.F.A. degree in Studio Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Azgour’s recent paintings focus on geometric abstractions of the figure and environment, where distortions in form and perspective are combined with representational modes of painting. Issues of space, light and movement always permeate his compositions, which depict a balance between reality and the abstract in order to address the subconscious. The female form serves as a major inspiration in his paintings which are highly informed by photography, design and psychology.
