Artist of the Day…Micci Cohan

Today’s artist, Micci Cohan, has some really awesome work. Her paintings and collages are really something special because they combine awesome colors and imagery to create some piece that I consider decadent art, eye candy.

Cohan has been making art for over 25 years. She has a background in printmaking and worked under several prominent painters at the beginning of her career. She has utilized all these skills to create the timeless and eclectic works you see here. A lot of her paintings seem to be inspired by classic artists like Rembrandt and Matisse, but you can also see the pop culture elements of the 80’s, 90’s, and today – which makes her work especially timeless.

Cohan has held exhibitions in galleries around the world and has commissioned out several works for private collectors. I would LOVE to own the print above. It reminds me of…well, me! Actually, she sells some of her prints at really affordable prices on her Etsy site. Be sure to check out Cohan’s site for some really great inspiration….I love this!
