Artist of the MonthSelf taught, African and Korean American artist Michelle Robinson was born an identical twin in Seoul, Korea. The army based family then moved to the US. She currently resides in Los Angeles. Michelle’s work explores bold contrasts, color palettes, patterns and the female form. Her figures float gracefully upon an intricate background comprised of overlaying rhythmic patterns and tantalizing color harmonies. Natural or unfamiliar, loud or subtle, she creates whimsical interpretations of the human condition using the movement of the female body as her wholly intriguing and revealing device. Michelle’s visions emanate from all that surrounds her. The artwork demands a momentous conversation between itself and the viewer concerning self-empowerment, identity, community, sexuality, freedom and the human condition.
