"Controller II" by Michael Vita
Marker on paper | 2020 | 11" x 8.5"
Michael Vita joined Make Studio in Baltimore in 2016. Initially focused on creating sculptural objects out of recyclable containers and all sorts of tape, he soon also became acquainted with watercolors and acrylics and was quickly as comfortable with these as he was with more familiar materials to him (colored pencils, markers). Comfortable is also a good word to describe Michael’s use of technology: with a big iPhone, he keeps his entire family as well as his “studio soundtrack” at his fingertips, and the studio computer is a welcome tool for the frequent image searches that he does. Michael also likes variation in surface choices for his projects, reflecting his easy-going demeanor and curiosity. Michael lives in Pheonix, MD.
