Duté -artist and designer- is one of the world's
premier decorative painters. His passion is for residential interiors
with an emphasis on painted details and handcrafted appointments.
He often conjures images of the past (Pompeian, 18th century French,
etc) and creates powerfully evocative painted environments. These
rooms convey a sense of mystery and romance. Michael Duté has worked extensively in San Francisco, the
Napa and Sonoma Valleys, Las Vegas, the Caribbean and beyond.
Herr DutÚ currently resides in Berlin where he continues to perfect his painting skills, where he enjoys the vibrant cultural scene on offer in the German capital and where he draws inspiration from the nearby palaces such as Schloss K÷penick and Sanssouci.
He travels extensively and his painting commissions often lure him back to California where he has a loyal and enthusiastic following.
