About the Artist
Michael Alfano first studied at the Art Students League of New York, with an emphasis on life-size sculpture from the model. His formal education continued at Boston University. The sculptor cites his major influences as Salvador Dali, Jo Davidson, and Jean-Antione Houdon, as well as Buddhist, Taoist, Sufi, and other eastern philosophy and literature.
Alfano has won over 50 awards at art shows, including the Cambridge Art Association’s “Sculptor of the Year,” as juried by the Boston Globe art critic. He was named a fellow of the American Artists Professional League and was selected as a portrait artist by the Copley Society in Boston.
