About the Disney Collaboration

After some in the art world mentioned to Provenza that the fantasy style and energy of his signature work would marry well with Disney characters and themes, he was encouraged to pursue, and ultimately earned in 2018, a license that sanctioned him to feature Disney in his work.

“I am incredibly grateful to have been selected to participate in the celebration of Disney’s 100 years on the planet with my art playing a part in it,” Provenza says. “Disney is all about creating happiness, filling the world with light and telling stories that inspire people, creating a world of imagination. In many ways, I believe we are both trying achieve the same things. It’s a relationship I value and I congratulate Disney on their centennial.” It is a busy season for Provenza with a calendar chock full of rare opportunities to gain exposure for his work not only in conjunction with Disney, but also for his personal signature work, which continues to gain traction in galleries from Hawaii to California to Florida. While it may seem as if his success came all at once, like most true talents, it was hard-fought over decades.

Artist Bio


“My paintings are an exploration of a world that comes from my imagination, with pieces of reality sprinkled in. My hope is to give the viewer the feeling of walking into an environment that is happy and peaceful, and full of enchantment and color. They have the freedom to explore it and make it their own. Just follow the path.”

Realistic Surrealism.

Michael Provenza has a totally original perception of nature and landscape. Provenza’s oil paintings reveal a successful blend of the old with the new – merging a realistic and remarkable dimensional quality with a surreal and magical environment – in a truly distinctive pointillistic style.

“Viewers of my work say they feel as if they can walk right into my paintings – they want to be there” said Provenza.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, Provenza has lived, worked, studied, taught, and painted for more than 30 years. Inspired by his artist grandfather, Provenza began drawing and painting at age nine, pursued art academically holding a Fine Art college degree and continues to professionally create oil paintings as his life-long passion. Provenza has become a highly recognized and collectible artist both nationally and internationally.
