About Michael Schmeja
from Victoria, VIC
Michael Schmeja is an Australian visual artist from the Mornington Peninsula. These days, he is primarily producing his work on the streets and in the studio in Valencia, Spain.
After completing his studies in Fine Art at Victorian College of the Arts in 2003, Michael went on refining his technique and style in what is primarily abstract painting and drawing.
He has exhibited extensively in both solo and group shows in varying contemporary galleries of Melbourne.
For three years, Michael was a resident artist at Blender Studios in Melbourne, where he was heavily influenced by a number of his peers that were very involved with the street art scene throughout the city. And some years later, when he moved to Valencia in Spain, Michael became a very active street artist.
He now shares a studio in the heart of Valencia with local Spanish street artists, and this urban scene is continuing to translate from mural to canvas, and canvas to mural.
