Michael Cassidy – Surfing Posters
Michael Cassidy was part of the “Surf Generation” inSouthern California in the 1960’s. For Michael Surfing became more than just a sport, it was a way of life that produced its own unique perspective. Michael spent three years in the commercial art/fine art program at Palomar College in Sourthern California, and two years in the Illustration Program at California State University at Long Beach. He returned to Palomar for two more years taking life drawing and painting classes-over and over again. He spent the next several years in various art-related assignments-commercial illustration, advertising design, poster design, photography and magazine work-but, not unlike one of his own idols, Maynard Dixon, it is a stint working in a humble sign shop to which Cassidy attributes much of his style.
In the art world, where artists are often tempted to tailor work to an existing “market”, Michael Cassidy is truly an original. He creates his art as it comes to him and the audience for it seems to find him-lately, with quite a bit of enthusiasm. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
