Artist Statement

"I am the many faces of the people I draw"

Mike is currently exploring the notion of identity, particularly in issues of searching displacement of the self. Identity is a constant revolving concern in his works. He questions the multiple identities that he collects – unraveling and seeking understanding about his own.

Mike’s interest in art making lies mainly in portraiture. He often portray identity in the form of a diary. Attempting to locate his identity by placing himself at a standpoint of the ‘in-between’ of life choices. By transforming the ‘in-between’ as a metaphor of nothingness into something tangible, he makes the invisible visible to understand the notion of his true identity.
