OUR HISTORY


 WIZNU was founded by celebrity photographer, Michael Wisnieux. Michael's photographic legacy includes capturing some of the most prolific rock-and-roll music icons in American history. As an artist of multiple mediums, Michael has consistently combined his love for music, photography, video, and events into creating opportunities to bring together artists of all kinds in unique, exciting, innovative, and well-regarded collaboration. 

In 2012, Michael actualized a long-held vision by securing commercial space to create WIZNU Studio+Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles on Gallery Row. Through renovations and revelations, a NU approach to creative collaboration was born. 

Since then, WIZNU has hosted a wealth of talent between its walls. WIZNU Studio has brought together workshops for social causes, hosted music and art events, and has been used as a filming location.  Many exciting projects have sprung from WIZNU's collaborations and brainstorming sessions, including REBIRTH: The Short Motion Picture, the ALTA Music Foundation for healing music, and our first artist-in-residence, Andrea Brook with her SONIC BUTTERFLY installation and performances. Working with a talented team of staff and friends, Michael has produced videos and films with such luminaries as Grammy awarded Koji Nakamura, Emmy awarded Gary Malkin and the legendary Glen Campbell.  

In 2015, WIZNU Studio was a host of the USA's first-ever World Art Day, in conjunction with IAA-UNESCO (International Association of Art- United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization). And in 2016, WIZNU provided crucial team support for the World Art Day LA Opening Gala, while hosting an expansive exhibition for the internationally acclaimed book and film Living On A Dollar A Day (now accompanied by a breakthrough audience engagement app) with Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Renée C Byer & husband Paul Kitagaki Jr., senior photographers at the Sacramento Bee; & video interviews by ImagePeople.com including MOPLA/Lucie Fdn./Farmani Group Creator Hossein Farmani – please Buy Renee's Book, supporting this crucial work!
