Micah Crandall-Bear creates color-field abstract paintings with the inclusion of his signature surrounding white border bringing a sense of continuity to his work. Inspired by his father, who was a professional photographer, the artist is continuously experimenting with color fields. His work is clear and crisp and often done with thick paint build up to create further dimension.
At age 17, he began an internship at the Michael Himovitz Gallery in Sacramento. The gallery owner and recipient of the California Lawyers for the Arts Artistic License Award. Himovitz quickly noticed the talent and passion of his young intern, acting as a mentor and ambassador for Micah’s career until Himovitz died in 2009. The California Lawyers for the Arts invited him to participate in the Creative Merger group exhibition alongside established local artists M. Louise Stanley, Al Farrow and Troy Dalton. As Micah’s career grew, so did his artistic maturity and ambitions. His first one man show in 2013 was a sell out.s.
Micah’s work now adorns the walls of many public and private collections including university hospitals, law firms, large tech companies, and even Facebook’s data centers worldwide. His work has been featured in American Art Collector, SacTown Magazine, and the Sacramento Business Journal.
