Michael John Angel, Portrait Artist Renown, sets up his personal Academy
Michael John Angel has developed a remarkable resume of personal accomplishments in his lifetime. He was born in 1946 in England and he emigrated to Canada in 1961.
In the late 1960's he studied under Pietro Annigoni who introduced him to the techniques of the old masters. Angel is a master portrait painter, and his list of corporate subjects is said to read as 'Who's Who'. From 1982 through to 1988 he was the director of the National Portrait Academy in Toronto. It is likely that Michael Angel has realized his dreams with the establishment of his personal art school, The Angel Academy of Art, in Florence.
