Art Crit, History & Theory
An Artist's America (Hardcover)
Meet Michael Albert, modern pop artist. In an effort to combine his art style with his recycling philosophy, he has created a signature line of artwork in which his materials are derived from consumer packaging, old photographs, and discarded cardboard. The results are brilliant collages in the spirit of Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell’s Soup.
Through his own interpretation of historical and epic events, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Gettysburg Address, Michael Albert shares his vision of American popular culture. Inj addition are pages on artist workshops for schools and a "how to" section on making collages in the artist's style.
MICHAEL ALBERT is a pop artist whose signature collages have been exhibited in both galleries and nontraditional venues. He is also the founder of the Sir Real brand of organic fruit juices, which are distributed nationally.Michael Albert conducts workshops on collage making at schools, museums, and special events for students of all ages. He lives with his wife and four children in White Plains, New York.
