Michael Flohr


Michael Flohr (American, b. 1975) has a technical style, loosely defined as “Contemporary Urban Impressionism”, that has been described as "a combination of avant-garde, abstract expressionism and impressionism”. He uses strong square brush strokes and heavy texture and jewel-toned colors to create his masterworks of original oils and hand-embellished limited edition giclees.

Michael Flohr was born in 1975 in Lakeside, California and is a contemporary art oil painter who is best known for his impressionistic urban landscapes. His scenes are known for "depicting ordinary moments in extraordinary ways" and his work has been called "an intellectually artistic mastery of color, perspective, technique and vision that redefines impressionism and abstract expressionism"

As a five-year-old child, Michael Flohr was diagnosed with dyslexia. He went to tutoring in the mornings, where his tutor also taught Michael how to paint. As an adult Flohr went to work in a casino in San Diego, but still had an affinity for painting. As art continued to be strength for Flohr, he decided to attend the San Francisco Academy of Art University, where he experimented with all types of media and artistic styles.

During his final year at the academy he received the Herman Lambert Scholarship at the prestigious New York Society of Illustrators, exhibiting among the likes of Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish. Michael Flohr graduated in 2000 from the San Francisco Academy of Art. In the same year, the M. H. de Young Memorial Museum included Michael Flohr's paintings into their exhibition in Golden Gate Park. Flohr then traveled to Europe to study impressionistic techniques.

Michael Flohr began selling his artwork professionally in 2001. He emerged as a young master and achieved enormous success in the following years. He produces textured original oil paintings and limited edition prints on canvas which a have thick texture paint embellishments to give an original appearance. His work is shown in select galleries throughout the US and Europe.

When asked about his influences, Flohr says: “The works of impressionist artists throughout history inspire me, specifically Pissaro, Monet, Manet, and Degas. Like these artists, I prefer to work in oils. I love oil paint because of its durability and the richness it brings to the canvas. I also believe that most people with an appreciation for art respect an artist's use of this classic medium.

“I do not work with models. I prefer to sketch plein air (in the moment) as a scene unfolds, most often with charcoal. Many times, these sketches will become works of art in themselves, because they capture a different mood.”

“A painting can just be something that pleases your eye. It doesn’t have to have a meaning. You don’t have to dissect it. Enjoy its beauty and what it brings to you.”

    “In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made; there’s nothing you can’t do now you’re in New York. These streets will make you feel brand new. Big lights will inspire you. Let’s hear it for New York.” —Jay Z: “Empire State of Mind”

    New York City has long served as a beacon for those in search of a dream, a new beginning, or a new way of life. People from all over the world have flocked to this great city, many times against all odds, to find their dreams fulfilled. Given its notorious pioneering spirit and ethnic diversity, New York City’s cultural impact on the world at large is unprecedented. Over the years, its awe-inspiring cityscapes have been the muse of countless artists, photographers, poets, writers and dreamers.
    In his latest work, contemporary painter Michael Flohr pays tribute to his own artistic infatuation with this dynamic corner of the world and its magical ability to make dreams come true. Fittingly, the artist chooses a composition honoring one of midtown Manhattan’s most famous architectural landmarks, Radio City Music Hall. The historical significance of this landmark is one of enterprising, artistic vision in and of itself. After the stock market crash of 1929, John D. Rockefeller collaborated to create “a place of beauty offering high quality entertainment at prices ordinary people could afford. It was intended to entertain and amuse, but also to elevate and inspire. It was designed as a symbol of optimism and hope.” Today, Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center thrive as a vital part of New York City’s architectural and cultural landscape.

    In “Big City of Dreams”, Flohr expertly fills his canvas with light and color, in spite of the evening rainfall that sets the tone. Flohr’s staccato brushstrokes and seemingly frantic, impressionistic style embody the collective energy of this remarkable city. Against the backdrop of the city night, the luminous reflections born from the rain and the majesty of the Radio City marquee illuminate this street scene. Flohr’s juxtaposition of color, texture and light give his work an enchanting, dreamlike quality.
    So, wake up with Michael Flohr in The City That Never Sleeps and you may find that your “Big City of Dreams” is just within your reach.
