The New Contemporary Art Magazine

Tag: Mike Giant

With a new piece dated every few days between November 2014 and January 2015, Mike Giant's latest series of drawings serves as a map of the current state of the artist's life. Though Giant is originally from New Mexico, his name is synonymous with the San Francisco graffiti and tattoo scenes, where he developed himself as an artist in the 1990s and 2000s. With rapid gentrification squeezing out many of San Francisco's creative enclaves, Giant relocated to Boulder, Colorado two years ago. His upcoming solo show, "Colorado," opens at FFDG in San Francisco on February 13, meditates on various transitions in Giant's life — his move halfway across the country, the end of a relationship, and various shifts in his lifestyle choices.
