Mikel Glass: Painting Truth and Fantasy

In addition to painting complex figurative works, still lifes and commissioned portraits, Mikel Glass is also a sculptor. “I can’t recall a time when I didn’t make art,” he says. “I remember my father scolding me as a child for creating a sculpture out of raw hamburger meat.” Glass has a master of fine arts degree from the New York Academy of Art and has shown his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He’s married to a professional cellist and together they have 12-year-old boy/girl twins and a 10-year-old son. Glass loves sports and plays in recreational softball and soccer leagues and coaches his children’s baseball, soccer and basketball teams.
