Michael Donovan’s romanticized vision of young and beautiful living in Los Angeles and New York is somehow raw and dark, and dazzling at the same time. The artist explores human interactions through his dark lenses, adding new levels of complexity and intensity to his stories.
Blood, nudity and glitter, cigarettes and smudged makeup. Donovan’s art blurs the lines between what is real and fictional, merging beautiful and terrifying together.
His work is an ode to the timeless appeal of power, sex, and dark glamour, the themes that are eternal but only few could execute in an original way.
