Michael Rosato specializes in designing and painting large-scale murals for public and private spaces. Museums, corporations and individuals have commissioned Mr. Rosato to create artworks for display in museum exhibits, corporate headquarters, retail spaces, restaurants, sports arenas, outdoor venues and private residences. His recent mural of abolitionist and conductor on the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman, has received international acclaim.

Mr. Rosato describes his style as representational realism and he enjoys telling vivid and often emotional stories through his work. His murals can be seen in venues across the country, including the Oklahoma City National Memorial in Oklahoma City, Texas Motor Speedway, in Fort Worth, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, the Headquarters of Bacardi in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Globe Life Park, home to the Texas Rangers, in Arlington, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Museum in Cape Charles, Virginia, the Chesapeake Country Mural Trail in Dorchester County, Maryland, and the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia.

His studio is located in Cambridge, Maryland.
