In the spirit of the movement, we’d like to introduce
Local Artist & Printmaker Michael Roman
According to his site, “Michael Roman is an activist. He rails against the injustices of the world in his work, yet his work walks between the lines of reality and unreality and connects the dots of consequences.”
See more of Roman’s art here. He will have his handmade stencils and screenprints for sale at the market this week.
“Born and raised in Los Angeles, Roman moved to New York in the mid-70s, and began making handmade stencils and screen prints. Roman’s colorful, traditional images merge Mexican style with Warhol techniques to adorn wood, canvas, metal, and fabric. He has created work for Carlos Santana, Madonna, and Keith Richards. He lives in San Francisco but keeps a heart and foot in Oaxaca, where he travels each year to celebrate the Day of the Dead at his gallery, La Mano Magica.”
