About the Artist:
Michael Koehler was born in the rust belt of Southwestern Pennsylvania and has since relocated to the Puget Sound area of the Pacific Northwest. Though graduating with a degree in graphic design, Koehler eventually found painting to be his medium of choice, being particularly drawn to acrylic and gouache. Within his work he sets to portray the curiosities and absurdities of our shared reality, the beauty and implicit danger of the wild unknown, and a connection we all embrace and neglect. A common theme found in his work is the struggle, manipulation, and coexistence born between humans, nature, and technology. These concepts are illustrated through his use of vibrant color contrasted by stark black tones.
