About Mike

By removing the line that separates fact and entertainment, expertise and the uneducated, Mike Bertino layers commentary and insight on a generation raised by cartoons, video games, and media. He creates a world so overloaded with cultural options and noise, all information is equalized in strength of voice and merit. A world where aesthetics and charisma determine truth so harshly, that self-worth, cultural-history, and reality give way to interpretation and a void of intellectual neglect.

He has a great blog as well here.

"We as viewers are forced to become voyeurs, watching the lady with her pants down, she is defeneless; caught by the all seeing eye and by any passerby. A conceptual reminder of Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.The tension is heightened by the smarmy onlooker and the cartoonish hard edge art style"

"When I first saw this picture, I thought the girl in leg warmers was going to the bathroom. The leg warmers kind of look like pants pulled down at a glance"

"I do not know where to begin....the leg warmers, Chuck Taylors, Scooby-Dooesque Crab monster, bunny ears on the hoodie, or the eye-black (red actually). Is he on a ski slope? At least he's "enjoying the ride.""
