I am a self-taught, self-made, well-known but still struggling artist, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I graduated from High School Redirection and attended Nassau Community College. My first major solo show, "Prince Michael’s Neverland: The Measure of an Artist: Michael Anthony Pegues," was at FB Gallery in New York in 2012. I just sold out at my first show abroad in Napoli, Italy, at Le 4 Pareti. In addition to painting huge exuberently colorful acrylic canvases, I often incorporate things I find in the street into my art, and I design clothing.
