Michael Misha Kennedy
Michael Misha Kennedy combines the stylistic accomplishment of Impressionism with modern subject matter and technique. Kennedy also creates some of his works on multi-dimensional surfaces, adding a sculptural appeal to his works. His background in design and Master of Acrylics title are evident in his bright, eye-catching canvases, where geometric patterns and additional textures make these paintings into decorative objects. Kennedy says he rotates the canvasses as he works on abstract paintings giving the works a sense of movement and life. He seeks a conflict or tension between hues, patterns, theories and textures; he says it mimics what we see in nature. Often his contemporary and landscape work reflects his love of bright colors and hundreds of layers as in his abstracts. He is a Best of Sacramento artists and continues to win awards for his breathtaking work. Michael Misha Kennedy has also provided a level of excellence in his award winning Kennedy Gallery located in Sacramento. The gallery continues to provide emerging artists and well known artists a great place to work and display with over 20 resident artists and three floors of gallery. You often see Kennedy himself at work there. His works have been exhibited and collected throughout the United States and are included in many public and private collections.
