A diverse art background that includes formal training in illustration and a part-time job as a caricaturist led painter Michael Birawer to create the fun, quirky paintings he is known for nationwide. From the bar or coffee shop down the street to a favorite sports or concert venue, Birawer captures iconic subjects and memorable places in his work. Motivated by a sense of community and nostalgia, he hopes his work evokes fond memories for the viewer.
