Brooklyn based artist Michael Kagan draws upon themes relating to space and man’s triumph over nature in his texture-heavy paintings. His self-described obsession with space imagery began as a child, when he would look at the moon through a telescope with his father, and later on, joined Space Camp.

Kagan’s paintings are striking in their interpretation of astronauts and rocket launches that recall the shining glory days of space travel.
