Michael Albert has been making art since his college days at NYU, where he studied business (BPA, 1988), He became interested in art after visiting many of the great museums of New York and began his own serious artistic pursuits working with magic markers and later, wax oil sticks (fancy crayons).

After 7 years of drawing, he began an exploration of COLLAGE which rivals ANY in the history of ART. His first collages were inspired by the need to use materials he had no other practical use for including old labels & the leftover stickers he had accumulated from his business activities. Soon he began to use the extra photographs he had accumulated after putting together his family photo album at home to create ‘cubist-type’ collage portraits of family & friends. 

Then came a breakthrough….one day, due to his reluctance to throw away a Frosted Flakes cereal box, Albert created his first ‘Modern Pop Artwork‘, a collage he titled, ‘Portrait of an American Classic’. This led to a series of these ‘Pop Cubist’ portraits of famous brands, including a collection of over 500 original Cereal box collages alone (he compares this to Picasso’s Blue Period). Albert describes the Cereal Box collages, which he calls ‘Cerealism’, as “a cross between Picasso’s Cubism and Warhol’s Pop”.
