Michael Villareal is a contemporary abstract painter renown for his thick impasto style. Villareal also creates installations and sculptures.

Below a link to the website of the artist:


Villareal attended Texas State University where he earned a B.F.A. degree. The artist is in the process of obtaining a M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

Most works consist of oil on panel.

The artist is based out of San Marco, Texas.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

What a bold style the artist has developed. The viewer gets the feeling that the paint is still wet and moving about the surface. I find his paintings similar to the abstract works of Etel Adnan. Both artists specialized in using heavy thick oil paint to paint with the end result being an abstracted version of the landscape.
