Michael Moncibaiz is a Rochester, New York-based painter. Originally working as a street artist, his focus on form, color, and gesture developed into his current geometrically-informed, structural working method. Moncibaiz uses spontaneous paper arrangements as reference material, like still life, to focus on less conscious compositions and to investigate formal qualities. His works on paper and panel straddle painting, drafting, and graphic design.
Michael Moncibaiz was born in the U.S. and raised in Puerto Rico where he lived through his teenage years. He went on to study at New York State University at Oswego where he received his BFA and MA. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in New York State, Oregon, New Jersey, California, Washington DC and Canada along with being a participating artist in the Sweet Meat Co. Collective and Wall/Therapy.
