Imagine sitting still for 16-20 hours while your body is the canvas for an airbrush masterpiece. Michael Rosner is an American artist with an incredible vision who uses his airbrush to transform organic materials, including humans, into brilliant works of art. Using principles of architecture and geometry to create magnificent patterns, Rosner’s subjects are metamorphosed into strikingly beautiful trans-human entities.
A Chicago native, Rosner has been working as a painter, sculptor, and carpenter since 1996, when he relocated to Sacramento, after attending Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. He discovered his passion for painting the human form in 2006 and has been doing it with the assistance of his talented team of artists at Eye Level Studio in Sacramento, which he founded.[see_also]
In his artist statement, Rosner claims:
Painting is my key to the secret garden, my way down the rabbit hole, my looking glass. The airbrush started it. The natural progression of my work led to a technique using found objects as a masking element that afforded me an efficient way to impose architectural and sacred geometry juxtaposed on organic surfaces such as human skin, the leaf or bone.
