Each painting is a story, a parable or a moment captured in time. The subject matter or viewpoint ranges from quiet & deep to loud & crazy. For some reason, sex, violence & death seem to pervade most pictures. As well as a bit of dark humor. Vibrant color, movement and the expression of each character are crucial to each piece.
Boo Boo Kitty was built in partnership with Val Carbonnier. It is a purple and red striped interactive artcar modeled after a scraggly alley cat. This gigantic robotic cat is specifically designed so that anyone can participate and interact with her. Whether it be operating the paws, tail or head. Or being meowed at, rubbing & making her purr, being grabbed or being sprayed. Or simply riding in her belly and enjoying the sights and amazing art on the playa (she is public transportation as well). All are welcome to join the Boo Boo Kitty experience.
was originally created for Burning Man for participants wanting to embrace
the joy of exchanging compliments for hugs. Since 2005, Mikey’s
Hug Deli has reached audiences across the world and a frequent establishment
along the boardwalk south of the Santa Monica pier, and most notably between
Esplanade and the Man along 9 o’clock.
