Raised in Rye, NY, Michael Braun studied Industrial Design at the University of Bridgeport. In his early 20’s, he became
fascinated with color, feel & design of fabrics & turned this passion into art that he could wear. Not only did he design clothes, but often hand painted, airbrushed or
embroidered them. In 1967, he began selling these clothes to local musicians & within a year was making clothes for Jimi Hendrix. In 1997, after experimenting with digital art for wrestlers, he began painting fine art.
