Michael Pinnix, Washington, D.C. Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement Michael Pinnix is a multi-faceted working artist in Washington D.C. using traditional medium, photography and digital art to expressively deal with the human form as a vehicle for emotive action in his images.
His work includes photographic services as well as commissioned oil paintings, drawings and massive mural work using aerosol paint.
Michael has enjoyed the fine arts since the 7th grade, when he says a "very special teacher" pulled he and 5 other, seemingly random students - and gave them extra hours of instruction during the school day, with permission - skipping lunch and classes for a bonus art class. He has been studying and painting since. Graduating from St.Mary's College and teaching in major cities for the past 12 years.
He is now a freelance designer/photographer with a penchant for the fine arts.
