BIOGRAPHY

Michael Cardinal began his fine arts career in 1970 at New York City’s School of Visual Arts. Under the tutelage of such renowned professionals as Gilbert Stone, Craig Kaufman and Chiam Koppelman, he began to explore two-dimensional mixed media expression and sculpture. In 1994, he started J2 Advertising, developing award-winning visuals for clients such as Coca-Cola, Sony, Burger King, and Warner Bros. Many years of experimentation in mixed media resulted in The Spaghetti Show (1999), consisting of 62 provocative pieces that wove together photography, illustration, Italian collage elements, and pasta. He is currently working on a series of three dimensional sculptures, called Yard Sails, which incorporate metal armatures with rigged vinyl sails. His exhibitions included a solo show, Pericolo Di Morte at the Space Project Gallery in Hollywood, Digitalis 3, a group show in Vancouver, and the silent auction for Women In Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards, honoring Gwyneth Paltrow and Blythe Danner.
