Howdy my name is Michael "Hank" Diaz-Leal. My artwork is currently being represented by Armstrong Degraff International Fine Art, Saugatuck Mi. I favor the abstract expressionists, texture and color are very important to me that is why I formulated my own acrylic paint. Enjoying the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons from the 1970s and 60s the vibrant hues and simple animation. Started painting in the 1980s, studied art at Hope college under the direction of Delbert Michel, also I am one of the last students of the late Professor Robert Vickers. Loving to explore texture because believing as an artist it makes color electric and helps brings it to life, that is very important for my art. I have two daughters and a girlfriend and too many pets, enjoying the works of dekooning and Picasso the most.
