About

Michael Kalish Astrid 35 x 42 inches Installation sculpture, aluminum Unframed, ready to hang Girl Nude Sketch Aluminum Sculpture When Michael Kalish combined pop culture and Americana with the object of his fascination, the heretofore “lowly license plate” was elevated from the junkyard to the museum, from garages and highways to the living room wall. In the process, he became the artists responsible for creating a new genre, winning international acclaim, and setting his expectations-defying career into motion. Out of the utilitarian and overlooked, Kalish fashions works of steely confidence, proudly displaying their wear, patina and rust as a tribute to that which endures. His license plate works include homages to America itself and to many of it’s most recognizable faces, capturing the likenesses of Marilyn, Elvis. The Beatles, and Mickey Mouse, all with a wink to pop masters such as Warhol and Lichtenstein. His roses, both framed and freestanding, are made from automobile parts; their surprising voluptuousness led to solo exhibitions in Museums and Galleries in Stockholm, Geneva and New York. His giant abstracts, comprised of recycled classic car parts from the 50’s and 60’s, triumphantly declare their resurrections. His three-dimensional editions, constructed of high-gloss metal layers, playfully interact with viewers, affording unique experiences depending upon their vantage points. Monumental outdoor installations by Kalish include: the historic Muhammad Ali tribute- “reALIze”- wherein 1300 punching bags suspended 22-feet high conspire to form a three- dimensional rendering of the heavyweight champion’s famous face, a series of two dozen towering pinwheels engineered on behalf of COPD awareness- exhibited at the Tampa Museum of Art, as well as The Perrier-Jouet Monument and “Raise The Caliber, a monumental public work made of reclaimed guns designed as a statement against violence, which is currently traveling the US. Embraced by critics, dealers, and an impressive list of contemporary art collectors, Michael Kalish’s original roses, abstracts and limited edition dimensional works, as well as his legendary license plate sculptures, are featured in the collections of world leaders, fortune 100 companies, past Presidents, professional athletes and musicians. His unique position as a preeminent arbiter of style and taste has led to features in People Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Details, Wired, ArtNews and the feature of stories on CBS Sunday Morning, CNN, E! MSN, TLC, and most recently the host of Discovery Channel’s- “Final Offer”.
