Michael Coleman

1946 -
Painter
Origin: United States
Born: 1946, Provo, Utah

In his paintings, Michael Coleman demonstrates his intimate knowledge of landscapes and animals. He studied animal anatomy at a young age while trapping and skinning wildlife. Coleman began his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University, Salt Lake City. His resistance of the trend toward abstraction and his pursuit of realistic portrayals of landscapes caused him frustration in school and provoked disapproval from his professors. He eventually left BYU and taught himself to paint, studying paintings from the Hudson River School, in particular works by Thomas Moran and Alfred Bierstadt. Today, a successful painter and etcher of wildlife and Plains Indians subjects, he produces approximately 25 images per year.
