the 'House of pop and Soul' Exhibit
Stella Michaels is a contemporary painter born and raised in New York.
She has been described as a channel of the past traveling on a highway
to the future; a medium between people and paintings. Her work traces
the boundaries of spontaneity and precision in equal measure. The unique applications of colors and textures, blending high gloss enamels and
acrylics through varied techniques, have given rise to creations that
are included in some of the most exclusive public and private collections worldwide.
She is best known for her blend of pop-art sensibility and abstract presentation, coupled with a signature rock 'n roll swagger. The paintings embody sound and vision; spontaneous cliff notes to choreographed dances that give life to raw canvas. Her reckless masterpieces tell the story of a life spent on the road less traveled.
Stella Michaels current exhibit, 'The House of Pop and Soul', focuses on selected works from her 2011 - 2014 collection at Stray Kat Gallery. The works on display reflect her experimentations with gold leaf, enamels, acrylics, and paper appliqués, creating a symphony of visual rhythms and sounds that resonate from ambiance to bold power pop.
