Eric Michael's work is an analysis of the interaction of juxtaposed elements as they coexist in society. He attempts to create cohesion among opposing forces to bring forth a state of zen, as he explores topics questioning social-economic paradoxes.
Eric Michael was born and raised in the humble streets of Caricuao, a district of Caracas, Venezuela. In 1995 he migrated to the United States in search of the coveted American Dream. Growing up, he worked hard to adapt to his new home without losing sight of his roots. The internal struggle of bridging cultural differences without undermining either one’s significance, created the foundation for his work.
