Michael Newberry has been pioneering figurative art for over four decades with his unpredictable brand of beauty, optimism, and passion. Some of his notable paintings are Denouement, Icarus Landing, Puccini, and Manhattan at Night (with the Twin Towers). He has exhibited in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, New York, Rome, Athens, and he will have an upcoming show in Washington D.C. in the fall of 2017.
He discovered Rembrandt at 11 years-old, Ayn Rand at 20, and Puccini at 26; they have fueled his lifelong excitement for light, aesthetics, and the best of the human spirit. He has also written and lectured on the visual arts covering contemporary representational artists, postmodernists, symbolism, and the aesthetics of Rand and Kant. Two well-received articles are Detecting Value Judgments in Painting, and Terrorism and Postmodern Art.
