"This piece, is part of a brand new series “Fragments” that I’m
working on for my upcoming solo show in Copenhagen opening this
October. I think I used over 100 different colors of spray cans alongside
acrylic and my own alcohol based mix. My favorite choice of flat and
bright brushes and a bunch of masking tape.
Weightless. I love the feeling. I often have that feeling when I’m
painting away in my studio and I forget about everything around me. It’s
some kind of an euphoric freedom to get lost in the moment." - Mikael B
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Influenced by his early years as a graffiti artist and working within the urban contemporary genre, Mikael B.
developed a signature artistic expression and identity. By combining the graphic footprint of wildstyle graffiti, a complex and intricate genre in which forms, words, and letters are woven together with bold colors and graphic shapes, he creates a dynamic universe that are akin to musical visualization.
The artist’s sense of colors and their effects play a significant role in each piece, bursting with complimentary colors to further fuel a near overwhelming visual appreciation of his work. These expressive pieces have a volcanic energy, uncompromising attitude, and inherent candidness which invite interpretations and appeal through their explosive colors and geometric shapes.
?In just two short years, Mikael B’s lifelong dream has become a reality. His monograph is bursting with dynamic artworks on canvas and walls, commissioned by clients that include Google, LinkedIn, Nike, and American Express. With numerous gallery exhibitions on his resume, Mikael B has been invited to participate in the renowned art fair Art Basel in Miami the past three years and counting.
