Austin Hribar is a Wisconsin-born photographer currently living in Bloomington, IN as he embarks on becoming an eye doctor at the Indiana University School of Optometry (IUSO). Not only is he well-versed in the vision sciences but also in the visual arts, as he found his love for photography in high school but did not start pursuing it intently until his sophomore year of undergraduate at Concordia University of Wisconsin (CUW). 


With an initial background in automotive, landscape, and nature photography his work started to transform and his skills grew with his time spent in and around the captivating city Milwaukee in his four years of undergraduate education. He began to find a love for portraiture and the intricacies of geometry, shadows, and long exposure work as he explored the city day and night. This transformation was all thanks to the amazing Instagram-fueled Milwaukee creative community, commonly hosting photography meetups and networking in which he encountered so many talented photographers and new photography styles.


Having a few galleries at CUW and mainly sharing his work on Instagram (@alh.photo) he has loved to share his view of Milwaukee and the surrounding communities with his own creative lens, actively engaging in the creative community always finding joy in meeting and working with new photographers, models, and other creatives.

Everything is a self portrait, whether it looks like it or not. Each piece represents a different state of mind. I processed change, rebirth, loneliness, body dysmorphia, and gender identity through these paintings. I am lucky enough to be born with hands that paint and draw and allow me the space to think, learn, and understand myself. These are my attempts at processing.


For these works, I primarily used oil paints, gouache, and pastels. My focus when painting lands mostly on color and how I can utilize it to create something appealing and unusual for the eyes. Color is the most invigorating part of the process.

August 5th - September 29th

"Expressing the Art of life" is the 'mission statement' of the artist known as 'mykulanjelo'. The obvious take-off on the hallowed name of Michelangelo is not simply for amusement. Today's 'mykul' adheres to the philosophy the Italian Master did: 'to reflect his Creator with the gift he was given'. He views his art as a part of life, like breathing, but actually capturing those breaths as art - a moment in time to cherish and ponder - be captured by it!

mykulanjelo grew up with a wealth of artisitc influences. Fine artists, poets and musicians were all part of mykul's family heritage growing up and he soaked up every bit of their unique expression of art and life. His young curiosity about Dinosaurs got mykul to begin sketching to understand them better, and the rest (as they say) is history! All through grade school and into high school the margins in mykul's notebooks were filled with 'illustrations' that related to the subject he was studying (mykul gives a "shout out" to all his teachers at KMHS who allowed him to explore his learning in that way).

Eventually mykul attended college at MIAD [Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design], graduating in '89. After a year out, his unique 'expressions' began to be noticed as he was commissioned to produce works for The Florentine Opera of Milwaukee as well as printed works for publishing, advertising and magazines. Billboards and buses were displaying mykulanjelo's eye-catching art to promote companies, businesses and non-profit groups. In the midst of this mykul was also showing at galleries and taking his Art 'on the road' to Art shows where he garnered 'Award of merit' and 'Best of show' honors.

Presently mykul continues to create commissions and personal pieces from his studio, doing gallery and private shows as well as continuing his commercial and published works. "I'm always humbled and blessed when people recognize my work" says mykulanjelo, "and of course continuing to grow as an artist/creator is the pulse, the heartbeat of ongoing discovery and satisfaction in my calling as 'one who reveals' something out of the ordinary... something from deep inside, from the spirit."

Explore some of mykulanjelo and his Art and see for yourself!
