The Art of Michael Furr

Random Favourites

Artists that inspire me or amaze me
My newer paintings have given up on meaning (in the traditional sense). "Meaning" itself is an abstract concept. I am painting my world filtered through my mind. Enjoy or hate. I could care less.

I want to be known as the highly talented artist who released sub par work....   is he kidding??

unlocking this journal. ..

Michael hates an objective reality and has abandoned that reality in his paintings. They become highly subjective responses to a hyper objective world.

"Meaning" is highly subjective and hence is no standard. So there will never be a single answer to "what is the meaning of BLANK".

Sub par art is a non existent term. An oxymoron. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so wouldnt unique artwork be liked less and be seen as sub par? I dont know.

I believe highly in leaving mistakes. I make lines and they arent straight. I mask rarely and for certain effect. I want my human muscles to take part in my creation. Not just mind. My body and mind combined brings you my hyper subjective figurative full being expressive artscapes...

pompous? Self absorbed? Nah. Just romantic. ...

Born from dust of the Earth, I bring forth my representations of life for you to see.

Throughout my life I have always been involved in art. When I was a child I was pulled from class to study art because they felt I "had a gift". Well I was a great drawer and really really good at making clay shrooms. I have a lot lying around still.

Well when I was about 13 I quit focusing on drawing and writing as I had before and focused on music. Music has been my life for many years. It touched my soul and inspires all my paintings.

In April 2011, I picked up the brush and began painting. I had never tried the medium seriously before and I really enjoyed it. After a few paintings I was hooked.

Now I try to express my views on philosophy and life through art instead of music. (though I still aggressively record music of the avant garde)

Please look deep in my paintings, you may teach me something with your comments. I am a humble artist. I want to learn from you...

Done! :iconyeahplz:
Appreciate your comment and I agree with you. I have never shown my work until I joined DA 10 months ago. Most of the paintings that I've submitted are from work I have saved on my PC and the pictures were taken with my Iphone. I had no need to upgrade to a digital camera because I never planned on posting my work online. I know I need to upgrade to a digital camera.
Thank you....DR

I'm a fan of your work...especially you recent paintings. Love the graffiti pieces.
