Based in New York City

Michael Sherman is a painter, public artist, and teacher. His work explores the line between figuration and abstraction, direct observation and memory, and often depicts intersections between natural and man-made environments.
Michael trained at RISD (03), and has exhibited his landscape paintings and drawings at solo and two person shows in Basel, Switzerland, Los Angeles and New York. One of his public works is on permanent display at 125th Street and 5th Avenue. He’s currently a resident artist for the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council SUCASA program and a recipient of a LMCC Creative Learning Grant. He has been a resident artist at Cill Rialaig Arts Center, Ireland (2016), CHASHAMA’s Spaces Program, NYC (2011), and the National Academy Museum, NYC (2009), and a recipient of an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant, Canada (2008).
