Make the Mistake

Mike Collins is a painter, psychologist, activist, and gallery owner who lives and works on the southside of Hermosa Beach, California. Recently, he was informed that he is an, "outsider." This is something that has felt true his entire life. And so with art, as it is with everythign else, he is happy to be an outsider: untrained, and free to dig deep into any mistake that might lead to what happens next. When asked about current inspiration, Collins says, "I'm really not sure which side of the cage I'm living on anymore, but one way or another, I'm going to burn this thing to the ground."
