Michael Summers

San Diego based artist Michael Summers was born in Los Angeles, CA in the 1970’s. His hippy-bohemian parents moved him to Joshua Tree before he could walk and, as a result, he grew up surrounded by an eclectic cavalcade of eccentric art-commune inhabiting social-dropouts, idealistic dreamers, and rural American free-thinkers. He left the state in his early twenties to find his own way in the world, and after living in such diverse places as Virginia, Missouri, and Texas, he returned to California to earn a fine art degree from San Diego State University.

He currently resides with his wife and four cats in Oceanside, California, where he enjoys working on his house, collecting vintage pop culture Americana, and diligently working on his meticulously crafted paintings. His work is shown regularly in San Diego, Laguna Beach and Las Vegas.

“For me, painting is about enjoyment; the joy of the creative process as well as the pleasure of viewing a well-crafted painting. It is a tool that allows me to reflect my own inner vision: creating the impossible and more importantly, making the impossible seem plausible. Each painting hints at a story of self-realization and gently pokes fun at our preconceived notions of reality and the extraordinary.”
