Michael Shaeffer

Works
Overview

Originally from Long Island, New York, Michael Shaeffer relocated to Arkansas in the mid-90s. After finishing High School, Shaeffer found himself back home in New York where he attended the School Of Visual Arts in Manhattan and focused on illustration. This is where the current style of his work began to form. Stylized portraits confront the idea of personal identity and social status within American culture.  His latest series “ Touched by the Hand of God.” addresses the concept of social status by using a nod to the style of rococo with a modern hand. Shaeffer currently resides in Little Rock Arkansas. 

Shaeffer’s work has been featured  in a great deal of group and solo exhibitions in Arkansas as well as New York and Kansas City over the past few years . His solo exhibition at The Thea Foundation “ The Thrill of it All.” was featured in IDLE CLASS Magazine. His work on paper and canvas as well as his apparel line and accessory line (House of Shaeffer) can be found in a great number of private collections. He has been represented by M2 Gallery since 2018.
