Mike Kimball is an artist in love with the city. He is best known for his paintings and prints of urban landscapes that seem to inhabit the worlds of both representation and abstraction simultaneously. The subjects of his artwork have been the urban environments of San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo and Osaka. "Whenever I look at the city, I end up seeing it in terms of patterns and textures and layered geometry. Its all in plain sight if you think to look for it." says Kimball. His artwork focuses on the underlying geometric abstraction of the architecture and design found in the urban landscape, as well as the curious effect that time and chaos has on that geometric order as it moves towards disorder and entropy. Kimball has exhibited his work both nationally and and internationally. He is a member of the California Society of Printmakers and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society. He is also a two-time recipient of the Yozo Hamaguchi scholarship for printmaking excellence. In 2004 Kimball was an atist-in-residence at the KALA institute in Berkeley, CA. In 2005 Kimball was an artist-in-residence at the Centrum Franz Masereel studios in Kasterlee, Belgium, where he editioned a series of six serigraph prints. Kimball lives and works nearby in his painting studio in the South of Market area (SOMA) of San Francisco. Before coming to California, he lived for many years in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where his art was influenced by the regions' high desert landscape and luminous blue skies.
