Michael Burt trained as an architect, and his work demonstrates an innate understanding of lines, planes, perspectives and structures. The vivid colors and clean lines are pleasing to the eye, whether the subject is a church, a group of homes or small houses atop rolling hills. Although Burts subjects are often buildings of a distinctive style or period, his use of color makes them appear almost timeless.
Burt was born in Asuncion in 1931. While studying architecture in Rio de Janeiro, he began studying painting at the Museum of Modern Art. Burt lives and paints in Asuncion, Paraguay. He has been exhibiting his work since 1962.
