My new “Puzzled Hearts” collection will be a hybrid of my unique techniques where anything goes. They will be looser, more painterly, and very much read like poetic journal entries. They’re fun, raw, and a highly cathartic process of processing.

Pre-order your puzzled heart now or reserve your commission. Please also check out the new weekly podcast available on Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes. Want to take a private art lesson with me? DM me.

Everything Dies Alone

Thematically, this is one of my darkest paintings. In my opinion, it’s also one of my most beautiful and valuable. It takes a deep introspective look into death and isolation…with a little homage to Donnie Darko.

“Faces Of The Parabox” is a subset derived from “The Boy In The Box” series. Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box. We often create our own boxes. This painting, “Mirror Rorrim (The Reflection)”, reflects upon the only person that can change your life. It’s you!

Michael Carini | More Than Most

Have you ever felt like you’re a little bit “extra” or maybe more than others? It could be anything, positive or negative. Maybe you’re more of a giver. Maybe you always work a little bit harder. Maybe you just always seem to have more thrown at you. Maybe you feel like you’re always more on the edge or stand out because you’re more noticeably different than those that surround you. I just want to tell you…It’s okay to be “More Than Most.”

As The Son Touches The Moon” is one of my more playful and minimalistic pieces. Sometimes less is more and this has always been a piece I’ve enjoyed having around with its lighter and jovial undertones. Sometimes you have to take the impossible leap and go for everything you’ve ever dreamed possible…and impossible.
