Michael Azgour
Michael Azgour is an actively exhibiting artist known for abstract figurative paintings that reflect upon fleeting moments within the human condition. Azgour’s award winning paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe, including solo shows at Art Museum of Los Gatos and Robert Green Fine Arts in California, as well as Art Fairs such as artMRKT San Francisco, Silicon Valley Art Fair and Los Angeles Art Show. His work is part of dozens of collections, including a recent commission by Stanford’s Packard Children’s Hospital. Michael is a part-time faculty member at Stanford University. “Azgour’s works are expressive and geometric abstractions informed by an involved process that combines a strategic, realistic technique with pattern and repetition and the muse of accidental surprise. His figures seemingly float with one foot firmly planted in the present while the other wafts into the past. Paint becomes pixel, blur or distortion mirroring the disconnected snapshots and video clips that that populate our social media profiles. He challenges the viewer’s interpretation by combining unrelated imagery in the same composition. Although the disparate visuals and juxtaposed compositions appear random, they are in fact bits of narrative from the artist’s own life and travels.”  –Kimberly Nichols Azgour is a lecturer at Stanford University, teaching drawing and painting courses for the Architectural Design and Continuing Studies programs. His teaching experience has included a wide array of subject matter within the visual arts, primarily in painting and drawing but also in graphic design, architectural drawing, professional practice, and art/design history.
