Michael Pantuso

 

For over 20 years, Michael Pantuso has been bringing design, artistry, and craftsmanship together to create effective branding and communications. An artist and designer with a solid business background, Michael crafts intelligent solutions that are innovative and engaging and that elevate any branding, advertising, or marketing communication.

A series of creative expressions, “Mechanical Integrations,” which represent a balance between realism and graphic expression. The working process becomes a place where shapes, colors, and textures merge to form expressions of vision, imagination, and emotion. Much of the work so far has involved the blending of flying insects with both precise and industrial-type mechanical elements and digital components. The nature-related subjects provide a foundation for the work. But the intention of work is more about the process of integration. Blending nature with mechanics. Realism with graphic expression. The digital world with the tangible. It’s work that results from a process which explores contrast in order to make connections. Linking common or complimentary elements to form new hybrids of curiosity and imagination.
