Michael Stoyanov was born in Bulgaria in 1949 and received his MFA degree in 1972, specializing in oil painting. During the ‘70s and the ‘80s he participated in numerous gallery exhibits and juried competitions, including a solo at the most prestigious art venue in Bulgaria, the National Palace of Culture. From 1973 to 1983 he was the curator of the city gallery of Strazhitsa, Bulgaria and hosted annual international painting conventions. His paintings have been purchased by the permanent collections of 32 art museums in Bulgaria and by private collectors from Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, Brazil and others. Michael has been living in the United States since 1992, where he was granted citizenship on the basis of his artistic talent. He made Arizona his home in 1996 and has been actively participating in the art scene of the Southwest. Both in his native and in his adopted homeland Michael’s artistic attention has been captured by the lifestyles of ethnic peoples and the beauty of nature, finding expression in landscapes, portraits and still lives.
Michael’s technique is characterized by brilliant color combinations, sharp drawing skills and masterful detailed expression. His preferred medium is oils on canvas. He finds that painting still lives of pottery on Cyprus wood panels adds an extra textural dimension to fit the subject matter. The wood panels require special surface preparation and finish, which technology the artist borrows from Byzantine iconography.
Presently Michael works and exhibits at the Arbanassi Fine Art Gallery in Carefree, AZ.
