Michael Porten

Michael Porten (M.F.A., painting, 2012; B.F.A., illustration, 2004)

Through sculptural works and paintings, Michael Porten has carved an aesthetic niche of his own. His inspiration is often drawn from contemporary pop culture and iconography, focusing on “the synchronicity of seemingly disparate content and contexts,” and his points of reference range from Vonnegut to Voltaire. He has had several solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad, including at Galeries de l’Olivier, Lacoste, France; The Late Show Art Gallery, Kansas City, Missouri; ARTery Miami, Florida; and SCAD Gallery, Hong Kong. Porten, a Huntsville, Alabama, native, currently lives and works in Savannah, Georgia.
