Curriculum Vitae

Michael Andryc

'Sophisticated Primitive' Contemporary Folk Art Pop

www.michaelandryc.com

Objective

  • Currently, I am devoting myself to developing and honing my painting while seeking quality exhibition opportunities and gallery representation.
Summary
  • I am a full-time artist working mainly with acrylic. I have spent most of my adult life painting, exhibiting, and selling art in various cities in northern New Mexico. I create what I call “Sophisticated Primitive” Contemporary Folk Art Pop in my home studio in Albuquerque, NM, and actively participate in the surrounding local art scene – from select gallery shows, large in-door events, outdoor venues, and private gatherings.
