Michael Oliviera

Michael Oliveira has been working at Gateway Arts since 2000.

While he works in a variety of materials, Oliveira’s stylized drawings constructed with paint markers and sharpies are his most sought after works. The cohesion between Oliveira’s two dimensional work centers around portraits of others. Oliveira’s ability to capture key features and isolate them in his drawings is quite remarkable. The intention with which he makes every mark is seen in his work, no matter the material or subject matter. Oliveira’s dedication to his work is apparent and part of what makes it so visually appealing.

 

Oliveira’s work has been shown throughout Massachusetts at the Berenberg Gallery, Boston’s State Hall, the Gateway Gallery, Barney’s NY, and the Mall at Chestnut Hill.
