Michael Mandolfo is a visual artist based in Buffalo, New York. Perception is a common theme in his work. Upon receiving his bachelor’s degree in photography from the University at Buffalo in 1985, Mandolfo has received a multitude of awards and exhibited across New York over the last few decades. His work has also appeared in Times Square, at destination hotels in many US cities including New York City and Las Vegas, and as far away as Buenos Aries, Argentina and Tokyo, Japan.
His work explores coexisting cultures in America as he focuses on discovering ways elements of culture are able to be expressed as a unifying force rather than a dividing one. His subjects may include one's individual perception, as well as cultural perception both from within and outside one's culture.
Mandolfo is also a partner of Forest Productions & Photography, Inc. – a commercial photography and video studio specializing in creating marketing and advertising media for corporate and institutional clients. The work created by both Mandolfo and Forest Productions & Photography, Inc., produces compelling imagery. Most recently, Mandolfo has transitioned his natural ability with still images into moving pictures through his video work. When not photographing on location, he creates his artwork in his 4,500 square foot studio in Buffalo, New York.
