Mikey Yates
Painting & Drawing

Mikey Yates makes autobiographical paintings about his personal mythology and the story of his family.  Working from family photos, home video stills, and imagination, his pictures are concerned with sincerity and explore cultural identity through the lens of experiences as opposed to cultural identity based on borders. Mikey’s aim is to see himself represented in painting and contribute to the multi-faceted dialogue of the contemporary Filipino-American experience.
