Mike Giant is a world class graffiti artist, writer, tattooist, illustrator and artist. His chosen palette is almost exclusively black and white.
He feels this works to his advantage in a modern commercial art market, as tattoos need a high contrast colour scheme to hold up over time.
His black and white images are instantly striking. He uses religious ephemera from a Catholic upbringing alongside the gang culture of New Mexico.
Mike follows the tradition of so many great American voices who address the audience in the first person. His style is confessional, both immediate and intimate – and to that we bow.
