Born 1974 in the Bronx NY, Michael Cuomo began his journey as an artist in 2002 when awakening a latent artistic talent for abstract design while coloring with crayons. He immersed himself in his new found calling which also served him as a tool for psychic and emotional therapy. In 2003 he began painting, actively engaging himself in various methods and techniques both instinct full and learned, while honing his own natural talents and formalizing his own vision for self expression. This has led to a vast spectrum of traditional and unconventional approaches. His work focuses on creating art from a transcendent state of detachment. With no particular outcome the artworks reveal themselves accordingly, using color and form to express spiritual qualities. As an interdisciplinary artist his diversity bridges together the one vision of being true to the work and allowing himself to be the conductor for creative energy.

Michael is heavily engaged in community projects that promote the arts, including teaching seniors drawing and painting since 2010 . He also is involved with art workshops for children with non-for profit organizations and public schools. His passion for teaching is derived from his own personal relationship with the healing properties that can be gained from expressing oneself through art. He believes everyone has a unique visual expression which can be drawn out through persistent practice and patience. 
His long term goal is to found a center for creative projects and art exhibitions which inspire people to live a creative life.
