During the month of January we are pleased to display the artwork of local artist raised in Sherrill, Mike Piazza. He began attending school at Munson-Williams Proctor Arts Institute in 2019 and found his passion for painting and art there. Experimenting with multiple mediums, he found acrylic paint to be the most enjoyable to work with. His primary focus with acrylic paints comes in the form of pour paintings on large canvas. “I enjoy being able to make a mess when I paint, I feel that is when I’m able to create my best work.” Mike loves creating pieces that feel like they are moving on their own and could jump off the canvas. He has had his work exhibited in the MWPAI gallery as well as the Utica sidewalk show. All of his artwork is for sale and he creates custom pieces upon request.
