Michael Weaver, born 1985 in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, is a fine art figurative mixed media artist residing in Philadelphia, PA.  His work features the juxtaposition of multiple elements including: Life and Death, Fine Art and Craft, Organic and Geometric forms.  Each piece is an amalgamation of traditional techniques in a contemporary style with not only paint, but each piece is then hand embroidered to add a new depth to each piece.
