Michael Paige Glover
Born in Mississippi and raised in Alabama, Michael Paige Glover began as a self-taught painter in the South. The artist was influenced at an early age by children’s books, comics, photography, religion and the surrounding landscape of Alabama. After completing his undergraduate degree in Graphic Design at Harding University, he traveled to Vence, France for an apprenticeship with Nall Hollis at the N.A.L.L Art Association. Afterward, Glover studied with Italian Artist Andrea Spinelli in Florence Italy for 6 months.
The artist received his MFA in Figurative Painting at the New York Academy of Art in 2001 and in 2003 he received a fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center. Glover has exhibited and sold works in galleries throughout the South and in New York City, participated in numerous group shows and has been featured on various art websites such as Daily Serving, Curious Artist, Orange Alert, HUMUS, Thieves Jargon, Lost at E Minor and LittleChimpSociety.com.
Besides painting, the artist has also adapted his skills to making comics and experimenting with animation. He worked on the animation "Milton the Demon Boy" for exactly one year and in the summer of 2011, the film was selected to be shown at the Northwestern Animation Festival in Portland, OR.
Glover currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
