About slobot

Sales 140
On Etsy since 2008

Mike is a robot sculptor, painter, artist & storyteller

Mike has been sculpting and painting most of his life. Since 2004, he has been exploring his one-of-a-kind robot art, the Slobots.

Slobots are the good guys and are an exercise in exploring human emotions. They are not destructive but work in conjunction with people, animals and the planet, with a desire to bring a message of hope.

A Slobot is created with old and new materials, and often incorporates bits and pieces of recyclable materials and other everyday detritus.
These re-purposed parts come together blending art and technology to create a Slobot healer, helper or friend.

Mike is a robot sculptor, painter, artist and storyteller. His robot art creations are explored in both 2D and 3D mediums. Slobots have been shown in New York City, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Istanbul and worldwide. He has been featured in various publications and art books such as “Dot Dot Dash:
Designer Toys, Action Figures And Character Art”.

Last updated on December 1, 2018
I have been painting and sculpting since I was about 8 years old. My most recent passion has been a virtual universe of robots that i call the "Slobots". The Slobots are an entire universe of friendly, human loving robots that are about hope and finding a place in the universe. In my shop you will find one-of-a-kind, original art of both my Slobots and other paintings and sculptures, as well as giclee prints of the Slobots.

I have also been selling my robot art for several years via my own website http://www.slobots.com and i blog at http://blog.slobots.com for anyone that wants to keep up with the Slobot universe in detail.
