Michael Owen


Owen is the creator and lead artist of the Baltimore Love Project featuring 20 love-themed murals spread evenly throughout the city. He is also the artist behind one of the nation’s longest murals, located in Baltimore, MD.

His work is found across galleries as well as on the streets of the United States. Visually, his work uses bold, graphic imagery to pull the viewer into the piece and divulge softer and intimate messages and metaphors. He employs minimalism to access a wider audience, allowing more room for each viewer to insert their own story. Currently residing in Baltimore, Owen lives and works as an artist in residence at The Creative Alliance, in the historic Patterson Theater.
