New Painted Book Sculptures by Mike Stilkey

Published Sep 8, 2014

Los Angeles-based artist Mike Stilkey (previously) uses salvaged books to create his unique painted sculptures.

“He works with a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer to create each artwork that can vary from anthropomorphic animals playing instruments to portraits of men and women inspired by Weimar-era German expressionism. Elements of his playful and at times emotionally exaggerated style have been compared to Edward Gorey and Egon Schiele.”
