He is inspired by the work of Jean Michel Basquiat, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg and many others. With paint, collage, photos, stencils and other found materials, He creates mixed-media pieces that are a frenetic expression of subconscious impulse. Often incorporating his own verse adding emotional layers that complement the raw textures and aggressive gestural lines of his work. In his career as a Graphic Designer, Michael is often inhibited by the necessity for perfection, so in his personal work he finds catharsis in the punk aesthetic of the hand-made product. He embraces and even encourages the organic and liberating imperfection of the mediums with which he works.
