-vindeca-te singur, vindeca lumea...- Michelangelo is a veteran multimedia artist with a crafted talent for capturing mercurial images that exude colors reminiscent of archetypal renaissance paintings. Their writing, photographs, films, paintings, renders, music, and immersive exhibits will transport you to alternate dimensions.
Michelangelo combines their background as a writer with a sincere passion for photography to tell your stories through the timeless practice of photojournalistic photography: the Bressonian "art of the found". Employing a mixture of Renaissance-era lighting techniques with vintage film lenses, hand-painted backdrops, adventurous sets, and a discerning eye for posing and expressions, Michelangelo's portraits are timeless, artistic, and truly serve to capture the essence of the subject.
Having worked at several publications (including The Monitor, Pulse Magazine, World News & Report, The Pan-American, and The Panorama), Michelangelo is well-accustomed to difficult shooting conditions and tight deadlines. Rain, shine, snow, or heat, this intrepid spirit is always ready to capture a fleeting moment.
Michelangelo has applied their numerous talents to a diverse array of weddings, events, art shows, and multimedia productions and exhibits all over Gaia, including the United States, Mexico, Germany, Romania, Holland, United Kingdom, Wales, and more, with plans to expand their growing portfolio of adventure visuals in the coming years.
Michelangelo is more than an artist. Their projects include:
a suite of eco-philanthropic efforts
a burgeoning directorial career
a litany of literary publications
a growing band of swordfighting students
a venerable reportage career
semi-finalist status on a hit reality show, Top Photographer with Nigel Barker
finalist status for an artist-manned flight to the moon through the dearMoon project
endorsements from astronaut Jose Hernandez, journalist Ben Lowy, and artist Uriel "Conquista" Landeros,
a sponsorship from Four Corners Brewery and their “El Chingon” beer
and so, so much more
All this being perceived, nothing sums up Michelangelo’s raison d’etre better than their own words:
“There is a soul in each person, a spark of divine distinction; truly we are the ever-evolving snowflakes of existence. Only through art can you capture the raw essence of being and bolster your fleeting moments against the ceaseless storms of eternity.”
