About the Artist
Mike Egan grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a kid, he started drawing cartoons, skateboard graphics, and had a new found interest in skeletons and devils. Through high school he continued to draw and decided to study art after graduation. Mike received a bachelor of fine arts from Edinboro University where he focused on printmaking. After college, he didn't have access to printmaking tools, so he taught himself to paint. After a few years, Mike attended the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science and became an embalmer/funeral director. Continuing to paint, Mike developed a style that incorporated his surroundings as well as his influences: folk art, the day of the dead, horror films, religion, Halloween and German Expressionism. Since 2006, Mike has continued to show his work in galleries throughout America and the UK.
