Kaligrafos will host a slideshow on Friday, October 3 where Mike will present his work “Falling in Line”
In the talk featuring Mike’s work and the work of those that influenced him, Mike describes how he fell in love with line and letters while also discussing how he fits into a distinguished lineage of calligraphers, both Western and Eastern. While Mike makes readable letters by day working as a senior designer at American Greetings in Cleveland, his personal work is more concerned with making visual works that incorporate the essence of calligraphy without depending on the calligraphy solely for meaning. The talk presents both the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde sides of his work.
