"The gallery is covered in Mike Shine's harmonously colored drift wood paintings which are hung on his site specific wall murals. We will be serving "Harvey Wallbangers" (OJ, vodka, and galliano- disgusting) along with Tecate and wine at the opening. The artist will be present. Good times shall be had.
Mike is a painter who mixes driftwood, reclaimed house paint, Nordic mythology, insomnia, 1970's pop culture, absinthe, Teutonic philosophy, his wife, and woodworking skills leftover from a previous life- to make art that is one part uplifting and two parts disturbing. His coastal art/surf shack was recently featured in Fecal Face's Art Mondays (view it), and intrigued us to bring his work into the Fecal gallery for a closer look. "
