Jon Michaelis

Jon Michaelis is an interdisciplinary artist working with mixed media; ranging from experimental techniques and materials, such as enamel on glass, to combining modern photography, illustration and painting. Michalis is constantly evolving. His artwork examines gender, femininity, fantasy, the body, cultural icons, notions of other, socialization and isolation. He uses a mashup of techniques and lively colors to correlate his personal reception with historical narratives, mass media and pop culture. All of which results into a vibrant turmoil of warm colors and nostalgy.
