Speakers / Michael Azgour
Michael Azgour

Michael Azgour is a contemporary artist, whose paintings contemplate the space between perception and reality with a hand that alternates between expressive figuration and geometric abstraction. In his painting process, he peers into our reliance on imagery – such as those used in mass media, advertising, and social media – as factual representations despite their fallibility to deliver the truth. Azgour’s award-winning paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe, including solo shows at the Art Museum of Los Gatos, CA and Hohmann Fine Art in Palm Desert, CA, as well as Art Fairs such as SCOPE NYC, Art Market San Francisco, and Los Angeles Art Show. His work is part of dozens of collections, including a recent commission by Stanford’s Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Michael has exhibited alongside a number of highly respected artists and regularly speaks in artist lectures, workshops, and panels, including recently at TEDx Krakow. Michael teaches drawing and painting courses at Stanford University.
