Mike Calway-Fagen is quite possible one of the most unique and resourceful artists of our modern time with his provocative, yet subtle images that are destined to leave an imprint in your mind. From the paradox of a dog standing on-top of a taxidermy of another canine, to the use of animals and humans together in one body Mike really knows how to create that amazing shock value.
According To Mike Calway-Fagen,
“The projects offer alternatives to disaster, critique our creation of disaster, and soft-heartedly accept our fate.”
This artwork is not a gimmick, rather yet a collection of visual images with intent and purpose.
