MICHAEL HAYDEN

Los Angeles-based artist, Michael Hayden, masterfully uses tinted melted beeswax, oils and resin with found objects and other mixed media to create luminous, colorful and multi-layered artworks.

Inspired by painters Jasper Johns, Mark Rothko and Richard Diebenkorn, to name a few, Michael works to create scenes that take the viewer to a place of meditation and contemplation.

Hayden says, “Every painting tells a story. The found objects and other materials I use to create what I call ‘horizon inspired encaustic, mixed-media paintings’, hold secrets to the past. These artifacts give my creations a soul. I leave it up to you, the viewer, to breathe new life and meaning into each artwork..”
