Renaissance Studio

Renaissance Studio proprietor and artist-in-residence Michael Straub produces commissioned works of art, showcases a roster of artists throughout the year, and teaches drawing, web design, app development, and cartooning classes for kids and adults. Over his career Straub has mastered a number of painting styles including trompe l’oeil (photorealism) and what he calls Lemurian style, his own blend of Japanese prints and medieval stained glass. In addition, he has been a professional DJ in New York City and heads a production studio that develops interactive applications, two endeavors that inform his web and DJ classes.
