Michael Vasquez is a figurative artist from St. Pete, currently based in Miami. His focus on street culture and urban identity is his signature style. He has been featured in galleries around the world, and is currently part of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC.

Vasquez has a way of taking the viewer through a world where misguided youth grows up and finds their place. Saint Petersburg is honored to be the first city with his art on it’s public walls, and his imagery is particularly poignant for the downtown area. He painted a brilliant scene of a father and son fishing with the old pier in view.
