MIKE HABS

Los Angeles, United States

BIO

Mike Habs (b.1987) is a contemporary visual artist originally from Chicago's south side, now based in Los Angeles. Using urban art techniques against design methods, his work interprets punk rock music with vibrant abstraction.

Mike's work is centered on conveying "the intrinsic value of punk rock." Though punk had been a massive cultural movement in America, it was not until the late 90s-2000's where he argues it established a more tangible identity. His use of expansive urban aesthetics against architectural perspectives aims to communicate 'the chaos within.'

He is a very strong proponent of the Do-It-Yourself mentality and is known to exhibit control on how his work is shown in social media and gallery settings. His inspirations derive from the works of Tony Fitzpatrick, Banksy, Moncho 1929, Casper Brindle, and Trey Anastasio.
