Michael Alfano is known for creating figurative and surrealistic sculpture that goes beyond the literal, adapting the figure to convey philosophical ideas and abstract concepts. He creates art that relates to the everyday, yet causes people to experience, think, and understand life more fully. Alfano is also an accomplished portrait and realistic artist, having studied at the Art Students League in New York City. In the Northeast, Alfano has created more than two dozen public sculptures, including George Brown at the starting line of the Boston Marathon, Ethics of Peace at Georgetown University, and six sculptures at the Museum of Science in Boston. His portraits of leaders include Anwar Sadat, Senator Edward Kennedy, Milton Friedman and Bollywood superstar, Rajinikanth. At juried exhibitions, Alfano has won over 70 awards, including the designation “Sculptor of the Year.” His work is found in private collections, galleries, and museums around the world. Originally from Long Island, NY, Alfano now works and resides in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
