Mike Asente
Brooklyn , NY
Neighborhood: Crown Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: I'm a conceptual artist at heart, or more accurately a philosophical artist. The found objects or images give me the content right from the start. Everything I do is as a critic of the world, the images and objects represent my feeling that looking at the Universe begins with really seeing the everyday things, in person or removed. As I develop the pieces, I give myself permission to have some fun with decoration and abstraction, even though the origin may be horrific or mundane.
