Mike Stikey

This summer 'Art from the New World' came to Bristol's Museum to showcase some of the most amazing artists and creaters of the modern art age. In particular Mike Stikey caught my eye. He has a great way of using collected books as a canvas for his unique character designs.

Since this hes had a solo show exhibiting in the Hurly Space Gallery titled 'Reminiscent'. Stilkey depicts a melancholic cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. His work is reminiscent of Weimar-era German expressionism. Using collected books as installation material is quite inspiring. Id like to try something similar!
