Michael Kalish is an internationally acclaimed mixed-media artist based in Los Angeles. His passion for metal started with vintage car parts and license plates and evolved to more refined laser cut aluminum and mirrored stainless steel sculptures, with references to American culture.

In his most daring and bold expression of the force of nature known as love, the renowned sculptor will unveil his own artistic sonnet in sculpture form – "THE ART OF FINDING LOVE", a 20 foot x 6 foot x 6 foot interactive sculpture. Kalish has designed the contemporary piece so that the viewer must find the exact vantage point where the sculpture is no longer abstract and "Love" literally comes into focus. A series of these large-scale public monuments will travel across the United States starting in February 2017.

Michael Kalish has completed several large-scale public installations for which he is well known, including “reALIze”, a large-scale multi-dimensional Muhammad Ali sculpture in downtown Los Angeles. The monument is larger than life, as is Ali’s legacy: an appropriate testament to the essence for the legend the world has come to know, simply, as “The Greatest.” The breath-taking effect is an enormous, 360-degree, two-story structure composed of five miles of stainless steel cables, two miles of aluminum tubing, and 1,300 boxing speed bags.

His recent monumental sculpture, Raise The Caliber™, is a tribute to all victims of illegal gun violence in America. This three-story sculpture was created from 2,000 pounds of illegal gun parts bought off the streets through gun buyback programs. It was unveiled in Hartford, CT on September 3, 2014 with plans for the monument to travel to other cities including Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
