Urban-contemporary artist and philanthropist, Mikael B fully manages to transform impressions and experiences into an abstract design language that exudes energy and joy as he creates his conceptual works of art with spray paint and acrylic. Having developed his own identity and special signature deeply rooted in his early years as a graffiti artist, the works are attractive and open to interpretation.
‘It is the art that we step into and experience with our entire body. A universe where everything can happen.’ – a mindset that also permeates Mikael B’s life as he juxtaposes and challenges art historical references from Baroque to Cubism expressed in an utterly contemporary fashion.
Mikael B has always had a desire to give back and use his art to make a difference. For this reason, the artist founded the Mikael B Foundation in 2017, where all charity projects come together. It started with a school in Cambodia but has since spread to projects in favour of ocean conservation and planting trees to reduce CO2 in collaboration with The Perfect World Foundation.
Originally from Denmark, Mikael works out of his Los Angeles art studio and is known internationally for his accomplishments as a painter, muralist, sculptor, print-master, and designer. Having worked with brands including Topps, Bentley, Mercedes Benz, Chase, LinkedIn, Google, Nike, and American Express, his art has been exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, London, Germany, Spain, Denmark and Bangkok.
