You are in luck. The gallery below shows the amazing art of
Mikey Welsh as he has created the work. From the bottom up with mostly recent at
the top, this gallery exhibits the unabated revolution that Mikey has found
himself surrounded by. Welsh has jaggedly smashed through a barricade he thought impenetrable.
His courageous journey through an unplanned life has delivered him to the edge
of a world opening almost as fast as he is upon it. Mikey makes art from the
inside of his mind and splatters it all over the inside of yours. From lightning
strokes smashed into the canvas to delicate spills of house paint, Mikey's art
works big. Unlike the polite sensibility found in a floral still life or windy
landscape, Mikey's spitting attack on color and form bring a unique change to
the viewer as Welsh's world becomes visible.
When thrown off, the draped shroud clears away all around.
As he again enters our world, my hope is for my good friend Mikey to stay.
Mikey's latest paintings deconstruct his historic
figurative works, reanimating the colors and lines into apparent abstract
fields of a bright new world for him and us.

the real texture and bombs of color that Mikey throws.
Titles and dimensions are shown as
reference. Mikey's advance through the images in his mind continues to
show his colorful world dragged into ours.
