michaelfoley's Profile Picture
Michael Foley
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Michael Foley is a self taught bay area artist who regularly shows nationally and internationally. Michael's work has a decidedly sardonic bent, he delights in poking fun at every aspect of society. Romantics, hipsters, tweekers and yuppies, no one is safe from his piercing wit. However, Michael's use of saturated colors and cartoon-imagery serves to disguise the mature content of his work. Below the light-hearted surface of his humor lies a deeper interest in the human condition. The things that hurt us and the things that we do to ourselves and each other to get by or to feel okay.

He has shown in various galleries and private exhibits in the United states and internationally.


I have really been neglecting DA. I post much more on my main site:
as well as on the listed social media sites on the banner.  Not saying I'm leaving DA,
but since I seem to check every other few months it definitely is no longer on my radar
to update as often as I would like. 

I also tend to post many progress shots while I make  pieces on instagram.
