Mike Egan’s eye for the strangeness of death shrouds his art. Invoking humor, surrealism, and grief, he addresses death from a variety of angles. Drawing on the influence of German expressionist Kathe Kollwitz as well as the Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posa, Egan paints in a flat manner with a heavy focus on portraiture.

Egan received his BFA from the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Mike Egan has shown his work in Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, Santa Fe, Seattle and San Francisco, Berlin, London, Glasgow and Vancouver.
