Biography   Michael Gallarda


Born in Martinez, California, Michael Gallarda is an artist of Spanish heritage who has been creating trompe l'oeil still-life paintings since the late 1980s.  He has assembled a body of work that is tied to a time-honored style but has a modern aesthetic.

He uses precise brush work and a slow build-up of transparent and opaque glazes to create images intended to "fool the eye".

Gallarda's work has been exhibited in England, Mexico, and throughout the United States, and he recently became a member of the Trompe L'Oeil Society.
