Michael K. Paxton

Artist in Chicago United States

The fact that I am sixth generation West Virginian who grew up in the coalfields of deepest Appalachia has formed the backbone of my life’s work and fueled a boldness, authenticity and true cultural otherness to my obsession to draw. Throughout my forty-year career as Chicago based artist this influence has ingrained a very different focus in my work and given me the courage to push hard against expectations in producing a unique body of work based on the constant search through the act of drawing.
