Witch Trials by Mike Egan
Mike Egan produces art which particularly resonates with those of us who are attracted to the darker side of life. Having worked as an embalmer in funeral homes for several years, Egan has had plenty of first hand experience dealing with death and it’s related issues. Drawing inspiration from the world of Folk Art, Mike focuses on giving a raw simplicity to the shapes and motifs he paints, and renders them with intentionally naive brushstrokes; these all important stylistic touches add to the handmade feel of his work. While Egan’s subject matter may be dark, he contrasts this with a bold visual aesthetic filled with bright colour and a certain playfulness, which successfully injects an element of hope into the otherwise sombre themes.
Mike lives and works in Pittsburgh and has been exhibiting his art internationally over the last ten years. He is an extremely prolific artist and often produces work for multiple solo shows as well as numerous group shows each year.
