focus on [art]: mike.stilkey & book installations.

meet: mike.stilkey (yes, he’s the one shown in the last [pic] painting a work of a master.)

Who said we needed paper to [draw] on in order to create unbelievable work?! well no[one] according to mike, the artist who specializes in what he’s [dubbed] them as book sculptures. The LA native is fascinated with the [unconventional] and prefers to paint on not just paper but the book that carries them.

He uses a [crazy] mix of colored pencils, ink, paint & lacquer to perfect his imagination into real-life. His specific type of style? Well, there is this fascination with animals and whimsical [almost] melancholic characters that exist only in a fairytale. But for mike, this fairytale he portrays is his own artistic reality.
