Michael Tewz from "Work of Art: The Next Great Artist" is one of the artists competing in Season 2 of the Bravo reality competition series. He is from Chicago, Illinois.

Michael Tewz ("Work of Art") studied printmaking at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is known internationally for his graffiti and street art. His work can be found on the walls of New York, San Francisco, and Chicago, and as far away as Prague, Sao Paulo, and Tokyo. He is the winner of the Cut & Paste Digital Design Tournament for Chicago in 2007 and more recently, the Mary Koga Award from the Japan America Society of Chicago.

Tewz believes that art can be serious and fun. He focuses on subversive, street-oriented works that are accessible to the masses, while juxtaposing the themes of "play" vs. "art." Working across mediums, Tewz is multidisciplinary; fluent in serigraphy, painting, sound, graphic design, photography, and many others. Passionate about his community, Tewz teaches at the South Chicago Art Center.
