Michael Milkin Paints the Seasons
Artist Michael Milkin was born in Kharkov, Ukraine, a city he describes as full of history and culture. Initially, Milkin was a student of architecture, later an art teacher and today, an artist whose collectors span the globe. He says that the opportunity to work with Park West Gallery and display his art on cruise ships has allowed him to reach a diverse audience that he wouldn’t have met otherwise.
In his work, Milkin concentrates on still lifes and landscapes, painting in brightly colored acrylics and oils with thick, dramatic brushwork. He is influenced by painters Cézanne, Manet and Vasiliev, and inspired by the country of Israel.
In this video, Park West Gallery founder and CEO Albert Scaglione joins Michael Milkin in his studio to learn about his process and inspirations. Scaglione mentions that Milkin is among the ranks of Park West artists who have come from or been deeply inspired by the country of Israel.
