Known for combining high and low culture through elements of painting, drawing, graphic design, animation, and collage, Bevilacqua characteristically works in a saturated palette, covering his glossy canvases with brand logos and doodles. Michael Bevilacqua’s semi autobiographical mixed-media works serve as a platform for exposing his cultural, intellectual and spiritual preferences.
Stylistically influenced by Pop and Color Field Painting, he is also technically indebted to Andy Warhol for using screen-printing as a brush. “On the Surface Bevilacqua’s work resembles an updated version of Pop Art,” wrote one critic, “but he actually uses this imagery as a cryptic language about himself, his family, his art, and his internal struggle to achieve a balance between these worlds.”
Michael Bevilacqua was born in Carmel (California, USA), in 1966, works and lives in New York. He attended Long Beach State University and Santa Barbara City College, later continuing his studies at the Cambridge College of Art and Technology in Great Britain.
