Michael Foster is a futurist, web designer, photographer, game designer, a cinema fanatic, and a visual designer. His varied career in digital and traditional media makes him a prime candidate to understand what it means to live in the age of reinvention. He began his careers in multimedia working in television, where he produced and directed 13 television programs when he was 20-years-old, including Barcelona, a pilot episode requested by Dreamworks SKG. Michael snagged his first professional illustration project when he was 14, drawing children’s menus for a chain of restaurants in the Southwest United States. He wrote a screenplay based on the Peanuts characters, which is included in the Charles M. Schulz Museum archives.
As a seasoned graphic designer, Michael has developed websites and advertising campaigns for businesses such as Dreamworks SKG, PepsiCo, Microsoft, TenderPaws Yoga, Four Winds Casino Shuttle, Clearsounds, The Country House Restaurant, and Chicagoland Speedway.
Michael paints in a re-modernist style, which involves the interaction between individuals dealing with the abundance of information we process everyday. With acrylics and India ink on canvas, he creates an abstract world to represent information and data in raw form around the subjects in the paintings. Michael has exhibited in over 30 art shows over the past decade.
