Biography

Michael Koerner is currently a Lecturer in Fine Arts & Graphic Design at Indiana University Southeast. He holds an M.F.A. in Painting, a B.F.A. in Printmaking and S.V.Q Level III in Health & Social Care.

Michael has exhibited in a vast number of solo and group shows that span the Atlantic, including the US, Scotland, London and Munich. His work has been internationally recognized by Sothebys, Bonhams and Phillips Auctioneers and currently resides in permanent corporate collections located in US, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

While satire is the thread that runs through the majority of his work, Michael is also known for setting up scenes of questionable narrative, creating word play, introducing a visual form of onomatopoeia to develop his ideas and visually engaging the public on a micro & macro level.
