“I am a Los Angeles-based multimedia artist and specialize in Steampunk sculpture. I scour the entire city looking for interesting items to take apart and re-assemble into things that you normally wouldn’t see. My motivation is to make something visually imaginative that will (hopefully) stop you in your tracks and have you peering over both the overall impression as well as the endless little details. My main influences are H.R. Giger (designer from the ‘Alien’ films) and Hipgnosis (designers of Pink Floyd’s and many other amazing albums covers).”

“I’m a Los Angeles based artist and designer. For a long time I took my talent for granted and never really used it. In 2006 I got into a car accident and fractured my hand. They said it would never be the same, and I had to wear a cast for a month. During that time I remember thinking how I miss being able to draw. So I went back to school and I learned how to use the Rapidograph. It was dreadful at first, but now that I’ve got the hang of it there’s nothing else I’d rather do.”

As an LA native, Mikey enjoys creating visual art through Photography and 2D Art. With a driving love for film, he has created an innovative way of portraying his most favorite movie scenes through 2D art of his favorite film makers. Mikey grew up making stencils on a daily bases. In time he began to see that the beauty of stencil-making was not the final product of the paint, but the stencil itself: Paper cut outs. Mikey began to experiment with cinematography and 2D art to create his own style of, “stenciling cinematography”. Using his skill as a cinematographer, he transforms a scene in to one image leaving the viewer to decided what is taking truly taking place.
