Mikel's work is about expression and abstraction. Process is very important to him and the act of painting and "pushing the paint" around is at the center of his art making process. He uses various types of medium to create images and make marks and textures. He enjoys collage and working with encaustic techniques (melted bees wax) to bring color and image together.
Since 2010 Mikel has been collaborating with fellow artist Gerard Amsellem. They have been creating large scale paintings and collages on doors and other surfaces (scroll down to see their work). Their work will be on display during the Artists Studio Tour at The South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC), a venue and destination on the studio tour this year. Mikel and Gerard will also be doing a live painting performance at the BAIRD Center in South Orange between the hours of 11am and 5pm. So come by and check them out.
