Check out the newest artist Michael’s Page on Collective Perspectives
I’m very excited about Michael Garfield having his art available through Collective Perspectives. Currently we have reproductions and should have originals available soon.
Trained as a paleontologist and scientific illustrator before launching into festival culture, Michael Garfield is the Indiana Jones of live art. Since November 2007, he has set up his easel in a legendary range of situations, from underground caves and raging basement clubs to NASA’s Ames Research Center at Moffett Airfield to New Year’s raves in the Costa Rican rainforest. He has painted, displayed, and spoken on panels alongside internationally renowned visionary artists Alex & Allyson Grey, Robert Venosa, Martina Hoffmann, Mark Henson, Android Jones, Amanda Sage, Oliver Vernon, Mars-1, Kris D, and J Garcia. His festival appearances include Burning Man (Entheon 2009 & 2010, FractalNation 2011), Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Sonic Bloom, Rothbury, Rootwire, Trinumeral, Bear Creek, Motion Notion, Gem & Jam, Global Sound Conference, and Geoparadise…and he has held live art residencies for the Trilogy Lounge in Boulder (2008), the Mondrian Hotel’s Pere La Chaise Lounge in Scottsdale (2009), and ActionPacker Pro Productions in New Orleans (2010). He also plays as organizer and journalist for the growing live art community, leading festival performance and gallery teams and showcasing colleagues with the ongoing interview series,
The Field Guide To Live Artists.
