Michael Chelich (1963-). American painter.
As often it happens with regard to American figurative painters, also Chelich does not exempt from certain ambiguity. It is not his technical ability to surprise, thousands of artists have it, but the tendency to allegorical representations that attract and repel at the same time, such as in this work of considerable size. Unfortunately Americans have suffered more than others the harmful influence of the last Surrealism and they have never released. The allegory or metaphor are represented according classic styles, the narrative follows dream patterns, and the charm of the Old Masters is too much evident. He is able to attract, but the artistic value is less than mediocre.
