Further Biographical Context for Pauloosie Michael

Born in 1960, Pauloosie Michael was primarily inspired by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and growth in the arts, most often defined as a response to the dominant strains of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating cryptic and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly renowned figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art scene, ensuring that international artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. Towards the end of the decade, the emerging practices of graffiti and street art were beginning to gain attention in the fine art community. Artists including Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat were working in downtown Manhattan and ensuring that spray paint and tagging gained some acceptability as a fine art practice, a trend which would fully emerge and dominate throughout the next decade.
