ARTIST-WRITE UP: Mike See
While in Miami for Art Basel, I did a few outdoor pieces in Wynwood (Miami's Art District), one of those being the PAC-PANDA. For this exhibition I wanted to further explore that concept and actualize it's potential to be something really fun and amazing. Fast-forward almost one year and well I think I captured what I wanted to...the nostalgia of our youth. I've spent time learning how to manipulate neon lighting with the help of master neon bender, Dave Ablon (Brooklyn Glass) in an effort to transport the viewer into a real life arcade game. To capture the piece in action, I created a stop motion short with a great photographer and friend Joel Sheakowsky. Finally to bring it all together I worked with my good friend and producer Chi-Bheats of Bklyn Stickup to create a heartbeat for this piece, an original music composition. This collection is meant to transport you back to a time when having fun were our biggest priority. I hope you enjoy.
About New York Minded:
NEW YORK MINDED Gallery | Studio is a 700 sq. ft. space in Long Island City, NY.
NY MINDED is an implausible creative thought process. Attacking obstacles, seizing moments, creating your own luck, and achieving what seems to be the impossible, is being New York Minded. New York City is the culprit behind this modus operandi – the imperative need to shock through achievements.
Our goal is to create a continuous dialogue about impossible creativity and prepare to be unprepared for what’s to come.
