2002:
Concerning an exhibition in december, people could read in a local newspaper:
"The paintings of Michael Puya show intense employment of the nature. Everything is contained by strong colours up to pastel diffuseness, from aggressive chaos to meditative geometrical order in his paintings."
(Carinthian Churches Newspaper, Dr. Peter Allmaier)

2001:
Some of my paintings have been selected by an investigation institute for arts (FIBK) in Germany. The jury of the art competition awarded eight paintings a prize to "Magna Cum Laude"....
