Engaging viewers and eliciting response are the premises behind Christian Michaels’ artworks.

The artist utilizes light, motion, and imagery to communicate relationship, context, and insight into the viewers themselves. These are embedded in media ranging from bold photographs and colorful graphics, to shimmering sequins and interactive video. The latter, more recent works invite viewer participation - with words, actions, or both.

In collaboration with Ronis Fine Arts and Carrier Johnson Architecture, Michaels was recently selected to create two large artworks for Google’s San Diego corporate office. They are featured as two large wall installations designed to highlight local flavor and encourage employee interaction.

Christian Michaels’ images are represented by Getty Images and published globally. His artwork has been exhibited in galleries in Europe and throughout the United States.
