Michael Reeder is an Urban Contemporary artist from Dallas, TX. His practice involves the usage of various mediums and techniques not commonly combined in traditional painting. In addition, his work frequently extends beyond the gallery setting and onto large exterior walls. Reeder’s extensive fine art studies, graphic design background, and early graffiti influence combine to form the style we are familiar with today. Reeder’s work commands attention through a bold mashup of color, graphic geometric patterns, and realism. His figurative work is heavy, saturated with bright, eye-popping color and imagery greatly influenced by the subjects of identity and human’s inevitable mortality. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and in numerous printed publications, including features in New American Paintings, Le Petit Voyeur, and HiFructose Magazine. Michael has also participated in multiple brand collaborations, including Santa Cruz Skateboards, New Balance, and Specialized Bicycles.
