Michael DeLuca is an artist from the Philadelphia, PA area who understands drawing as a medium unto itself. Working exclusively with pastel on paper, he uses 2-dimensional graphic shapes as subject matter to explore ideas of gesture, motion, and cause & effect. His shapes are intentionally flat, but malleable; minimal, but full. And Drit’s their uncoordinated ability to expand, stretch, slouch, or bend that interests Michael the most.
Michael teaches at Arcadia University where he is an Assistant Professor of Drawing.
His work has also been featured in Artmaze Magazine, Studio Visit Magazine and New American Paintings.
