Artist Statement:

"I'm a curious person with nothing to hide. My art expresses these curiosities. Is it important? Maybe it is or isn't. Instead of talking about it, create a painting of it or drawing? A work of art makes curiosities worth mentioning."

-Mike Schelly-

About the Artist:

Mike Schelly, received professional art training at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts in the early 1990's. He then continued his art training at Otis College of Art and Design and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1997.

Mike creates his artwork by using his tablet. Although the art is digital, the work itself looks as if it was created using traditional art mediums, like charcoal stick, chalk pastel, oil paint, etc. Mike will create art using traditional medium on paper or canvas, if he has a reason to do so. Since 2015, Mike has shown and sold his artwork on the first Friday of every month. He has also shown in several galleries, cafes, and a few festivals, including the Long Beach Library. He was commissioned to create a mural on a stairway in Mt. Washington, California in 1996.
