Additional Michael Cano Page Links | Bottom of Page
I am so happy to present the newest addition to ArtRep-DG.
Michael Cano is a California artist. When I have been asked what the definition of art is, I generally answer, “Transformation of materials with an autobiography thrown in”. Certainly, Michael’s work exemplifies this definition.
He had a slightly sketchy path to becoming an artist, and he could have wound up on a different one entirely. Confronted with gang activity, drug opportunities and police run ins it was his innate talent that saved him literally.
Teachers at Rio Hondo College supported this talent and suggested he apply to Art Center College of Design. He easily was accepted but felt like an outlier. He worked hard, always feeling like he was swimming upstream. Lauded for his work ethic and curiosity, he graduated from Art Center with the prerequisite skills to be an artist.
Cano is an artist who responds to his environment with sensitivity and keen observation.
No more outlier now.
