Michael Ramstead is an oil painter from Long Beach, California. In 2010 he earned his BA in Art Studio from UC Davis.
Ramstead grew up constantly drawing his favorite cartoon and video game characters and knew from a young age that he wanted to make art for the rest of his life. Michael was introduced to oil paints in high school, and he’s been working with them ever since.
Ramstead’s subject matter is often times inspired by the paranormal and the supernatural, and his style is influenced by the work of the Old Masters and the contemporary paintings of Pop Surrealists and Low Brow artists.
