Michael Carini

Michael Carini received his artistic training in Los Angeles, studying at Loyola Marymount University while simultaneously serving as an apprentice under respected artists Jane Brucker and Roland Reiss. Graduating at the top of his class in 2006 with honors including the Scholar of Distinction Award in Painting, Carini returned to his hometown in San Diego, where he currently maintains his studio.

Michael Carini’s creative visions will “play with your senses and illuminate the human condition as he delves into the uncensored depths of his mind and invites you to catch a glimpse of the other side”. Through a distinctive style he has deemed “Acrylic Alchemy”, it is Carini’s hope that you will “completely lose yourself within these labyrinthine experiences, only to discover a new sense of self and emerge reborn.”
