Michael Slatky, NYC Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement Michael Slatky (b. 1972) is an American artist who works in watercolor, pencil, ink, and digital media. He is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a B.F.A. in Illustration. He currently lives in Manhattan.
Slatky’s pieces are immediately striking; visceral, hallucinatory, and simultaneously fascinated with and repulsed by the human form. His focus is nothing short of the limitations of bodily reality and the possibility of transcendence.
In 2011, Slatky self-published his first book, "Dogs' Minds in Asphalt: Book One" in a limited edition. 2012 will see the release "Dogs' Minds in Asphalt: Book Two", as well as "Approach Me", part of an ongoing collaboration with the artists’ collective 1RODHWY.
