Michael Birawer
American Artist (Born 1971, St. Paul MN USA)

Nationally-acclaimed artist, Michael Birawer, has brought a new look to the face of urban neighborhoods through his unique style of painting. A combination of graffiti, cartoon, illustration and heavy textures, his paintings have received praise from both art criticsand patrons, who describe his work as “one of the best examples of the contemporary revival of urban art.”

When asked about his work Birawer states, “In my work, I strive to capture theconnections between people and place that create identity. Where we stop for coffee inthe morning, have a beer with a friend, or celebrate an anniversary all become a part of who we are as individuals, neighbors, and community members. By exaggerating the personalities of the people and architecture, I hope to inspire emotions and evoke memories for the viewer; feelings that may go unnoticed or underappreciated in the
routine of life. Additionally, I hope that my work makes people think about the importance of community in a world that seems to be increasingly individualistic.”

In addition to selling over 70 original works depicting scenes of the Twin Cities, Chicago, Seattle, Las Vegas and San Francisco, Michael has completed commissions for the Minnesota Twins, Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy and the Minnesota State Fair,
among others.

Birawer was born, raised and currently lives in the Twin Cities.
