MICHAEL HAMBOUZ
is a New York City-based, academically trained artist, born in Niles, Michigan. Hambouz’s current work focuses on a method that he calls “full immersion portraiture.” In preparation for each piece, he requires subjects to reveal obsessions, muses, and secrets, which he then uses to build preliminary compositional concept sketches with embedded personal symbolism. Collaborating with each subject, he co-art directs a “film set” to shoot photographs to reference for the final painted portrait. Throughout the painting process, he further submerges himself in the life of the subject by studying their biggest influences and listening to their favorite music—a process that brings him closer to the subject, and allows the subject’s hand to guide, subconsciously, each brush stroke and pigment selection.

He works exclusively in acrylic on stretched canvas or board.

Michael, Welcome to Brooklyn Art Project.

I am a stand-up comic and since I joined this network, I have found that this is a great site to share your Art, post your Blogs, upload clips, photos, joining Groups and Forums. I hope you enjoy Brooklyn Art Project as much as I do. The best way to keep up with my daily high jinkery is on Twitter, my user name is: http://twitter.com/JaneyGodley
