DESCRIPTION

Through his painting, Mike explores the well-lived lives of his subjects' well-worn faces. More psychological profiles than portraits, Mike sources real people, his imagination, and found photographs, merging them to create a powerful emotional atmosphere frozen on canvas. 

The underlying concept of Mike's paintings is about how we process memory. Through their iconic imagery, the paintings are designed to stir deep-rooted memories of people who have influenced us from our past because those memories hold great value to who we are.
