About the Artist

Michael Lazarus creates icon-like paintings in eye-popping colors on partly cut-out panels. The intricate, layered compositions update Op Art with a darkly psychedelic spin, as in “Nobodies Business,” in which layered, primary-colored spirals emanate from a central death’s head collaged from photographic scraps. It is like the work of a heavy-metal stoner with an acute feel for contemporary graphic design.
