Michael Sacramento was born in Manila, Philippines in 1971. He learned how to draw from his father who owned and designed for his own shoe business. Their artistic bond forged and continues to fuel Michael's interest for creativity. After studying painting and drawing at California State University, Northridge and San Francisco State University, Michael began his professional fine art career in 2003 with a sold out show in his first gallery exhibition.
In the same year, Michael received a training grant from the University of California, Berkeley to further his studies at California College of the Arts. In 2005, he received another award to participate in Taking the Leap, a business school for artists. He continued his journey through more than twenty exhibitions and has been featured in various media including the international publication, Filipinas Magazine. In 2009, Michael was offered a solo exhibition in the U.S. national historic landmark International Hotel in San Francisco.
