About Me

Michael Newberry is nearing his fourth decade as a full time artist, and he lives primarily from art sales to private collectors. Most recently (March 2012) his monumental work, Lovers Jumping, became part of Chan Luu's art collection. Michael has primarily shown with institutions and through his studio - by-passing commercial galleries.

Michael specializes in innovative major figurative works; powerfully unique pastel drawings; and luminescent charcoal drawings. Collector Steven Bilow recently blogged why Newberry's Denoument is his favorite painting of all time. He shares his knowledge through mentoring, regularly giving classes, and through his online art tutorials. In the 90's he taught Foundation life drawing, still life, and painting at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.

He is a pioneer in integrating figurative art fundamentals with new insights into composition, subject matter, color theory, and spatial depth. He has a thorough understanding of great masters such as da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Monet. And he draws inspiration from travels, international food, good friends, and the creative life.

Ockham's Razor is publishing an art book of art of his tutorials in 2013.
