Painter Michael Indorato Wrestles Ideas to the Canvas

By: Katie Cordrey - Published: Mar 6, 2010 • References: indorato & troubadour21
Michael Indorato is a self-taught artist/painter who revels in visual theatrics. The internal forces that compel him to paint are rooted in spiritual, political, and social thought but informed by his own human experience.

Wrestling is both a skill and a metaphor for the artist’s approach to his work: he was a New Jersey All-State and All-American collegiate wrestler. Indorato applies the same mental energy to his work as he struggles to ‘pin’ an image to blank canvas. Attempts to resolve the tension between an imagined ideal and the actual conditions of life drive his creativity.

Indorato’s work is bold and thoughtful and a challenge to all of the human senses. View more on his website or his eBay store.
