Albert has been creating art since his college days at New York University (BPA /1984-1988), where he studied business. During that time, he became interested in art after visiting many of the great museums of NYC and seeing many of the greatest masterpieces in the world, and soon after began making his own. His art has evolved from doodles and Pen & Ink, to serious wax oil drawings, to the cubist mosaic cereal box collages (Cerealism) he has become known for. In the past two decades he has been creating large-scale “Epic” collage works using the cardboard packaging of iconic consumer brands on various themes. He is the founder/owner of Sir Real, a brand of fruit juice & natural foods found at specialty markets (including Greiser’s locally). Since the publishing of his book, an artist’s autobiography titled, “An Artist’s America” (Henry Holt, 2008), he has developed a traveling Pop Art Enrichment Program & Hands-On Collage Workshop for all age groups called the “Modern Pop Art Experience”, which he has brought to over 1,000 schools, libraries, museums & other arts venues all over the USA & in Europe. Albert has worked with the Easton Public Library a few times now, developing a special relationship with Director Lynn Zaffino & her fantastic staff as well as local legend Dolly Curtis (who helps bring in the artists). He has displayed his artworks in the library on several occasions & run collage workshops for kids & families twice. Lately he has developed Virtual Art programs & he will be running a Zoom workshop for the EPL on Saturday February 6 at 11am. Check out www.pinterest.com/sirrealjuice/ and Google “Michael Albert American Pop Artist” for articles, videos, and additional images & information.  Michael Albert Studio is located in White Plains / For Appointment call 917-841-3486.
