For this year's piano, I continued my thread of using sheet music and bright colors as the basis of the design while approaching the work in a very different way. Much of my work lately has drawn from nature-skies and foliage etc-contrasted with the man-made world. I incorporated this into the work by having the majority of the piano covered with an abstracted painted sky-scape above an abstracted cityscape, created with masked sheet music and paint.
About the Artist
Michael David Kozlowski is a painter whose work has recently sprung to many people's attention-selected as one of eight artists by the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum's director Richard Klein for Westport Art Center's "SOLOS, 2015" show. Soon after this he was awarded "Best in Show" at the Greenwich Art Society's Flinn exhibition "Emergence," by Christie Mitchell of the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 2016 Michael was inducted into New Canaan's Silvermine Guild of Artists.
In 2014 Michael was awarded a grant and residency with the Vermont Studio Center and upon returning to Connecticut was a featured artist in New Haven's City Wide Open Studios-an honor repeated in 2015. Michael was recently chosen by The Huffington Post's John Seed as one of the 50 Memorable Painters of 2015 for Poets and Artists Magazine. He was also the subject of a recent Hearst Media artist feature.
