Velveeta Heartbreak (ne Michael J. Bowman) is an artist and self-taught musician who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, USA with his wife and daughter. Mr. Bowman was born in Elk Grove Village, IL in 1962 and attended art school in Syracuse NY in the early 1980's. He is of the first artists to hang a painting in the now legendary Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, in 1990 creating paintings, posters and installations for the Lizard's Tail performance space and "Cat's Head" warehouse art events on the then un-developed Williamsburg waterfront. More recently, Mr. Bowman's large-scale drawings have been exhibited in several Brooklyn art galleries, including a 2005 solo show in the Williamsburg neighborhood, of which the New York Daily News wrote "large drawings littered with psychedelic shapes and subversive punk slogans". Mr. Bowman has also published collections of his drawings as the "Nova Feedback" zine series, of which Arthur magazine said "a hot bouquet of drawings and collages that range from extremely casual to speed-freak-detailed...some of them have a very ‘50s animation feel to them".
