Michael Genovese

As far as excitement levels go, I'm pretty high on finding Michael's work. He never went to art school and is a "professional" sign painter in Chicago, yet his thought and vision and inspiration far outweighs 99% of the creative people I've met. His work is almost totally text based, whether it's graffiti text, Latino sign text or book type. He's worked on canvas, tin, zinc, steel and he's had solo shows around the country. If you haven't seen his work you should go to these links and look at it right away.
