Michael Mahaffey's Profile
I am an artist obsessed with contradiction. I love mixing together opposing elements and celebrating the results. I feel like I have a kind of artistic ADD...I love working with all different kinds of mediums. I grew up using pens and pencils and then switched to pastels when I saw how smoothly they could be blended and how saturated and solid the colors could be represented. I'm currently working primarily with spray paint and stencils and I very much enjoy the variety of outcomes these seemingly simple tools allow. I love working with icons - easily recognized visuals that I can apply my own agenda to and then offer up a new vision. The goal is sometimes for social commentary, sometimes humor, but hopefully always intriguing.
