Michael Moncibaiz (b. 1981) is an El Paso, Texas-based painter. Michael’s work dissects architectural space through jagged planes of color suspended in a state of flux. Harnessing the spontaneity of collage Michael begins his paintings by working out a composition in paper collage. With draftsman-like precision he then translates the collage into paint, capturing the subtle shadows cast between paper creases to create an illusionistic sense of space.
