Cutlip

Michael Cutlip – a self-taught multimedia artist and workshop facilitator based in Berkeley, California – mixes found paper and paint on panels to create vibrant juxtapositions of colour, form and texture. Heavily influenced by graffiti and street art, his works reconstitute the rawness and detritus of urban life into abstract compositions. They reflect the human need to arrive at meaning and value in the middle of the confusion and commotion generated within a metropolitan existence.

Michael has a strong following in the Bay Area and beyond. His compositions have been exhibited in San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Vancouver and have been part of the corporate collections of Microsoft, Bloomingdales, Kaiser Permanente and the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, among others. His work is also featured in the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara and is included in the singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan’s private collection.

Cutlip was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and exposed to creativity at a young age through his mother, a writer and musician with a passion for arts and crafts. Initially a Business Major at California State University, East Bay, Michael eventually decided to pursue a degree in Fine Art.
