Original Oil on Canvas
A graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Mike Desatnick creates strikingly beautiful and colorful canvases of Native Americans and their traditional ceremonials. While the overall rendering of the figures is realistic, he interprets the colors, texture and overall mood of his subject in a painterly, impressionistic style, thus bringing an emotional depth to his canvas.
Based out of his home/studio in a picturesque setting in Colorado, the multiple award-winning artist also enjoys painting interiors, still-lifes and market scenes. He exhibits in various invitational shows, including the Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale at the Gene Autry Museum.
