  • Bio / Artists statement

    Michael Moffett currently has a sculpture and painting studio and gallery in Cocoa Beach. He attended Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota and Palomar College in California, majoring in Fine Arts. He worked in Canada as a professional welder, building farm equipment for International Harvester for a short period of time before returning to Florida to open a welding studio and bronze foundry to create his own bronze sculptures. While exhibiting his sculptures at the prestigious Walt Disney Festival of the Masters, where he won best in sculpture, Disney added a Moffett bronze sculpture to the Disney art collection. An offshoot of that show was that Disney used a Moffett sculpture in a movie. Moffett is also infamous for creating a bronze drinking fountain - the infamous Fountainhead bronze sculpture - for a city park which created a world wide controversy over the artist's use of creative freedom of expression. Moffett has shown work at the Bishop Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, the Polasek Museum Winter Park, FL, the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival, won Best in Show three times at the Orlando Museum of Art First Thursdays Art Show, a bronze sculpture was picked by Mayor Buddy Dyer for The Mayor's Gallery at Orlando City Hall Show in 2016 and showed at Clio Anti Art Fair in Manhattan, NY in 2019. Moffett's work was featured in A Soldier's Home show at Art & History Museums - Maitland in Fall 2018. Moffett was a featured artist on PBS's WUCF Artisodes TV show in 2017 and currently is represented by an art gallery in Brooklyn, NY. He hopes to inspire other artists while teaching at Art & History Museums - Maitland.
