Mike Egan, At Home Together, 2020

Looking for a job that required minimal schooling, Mike became an embalmer, but continued honing his painting skills as well as creating toys. He now resides in Chicago, Illinois.

Date Acquired: May 11, 2020

Location Acquired: Through the artist’s website

Type: Painting on wood

Size: 6″ x 8″

Personal Connection: I’m not sure how I discovered Mike’s work, but I think it was on Instagram. I love Day of the Dead inspired work and I see a lot of that in Mike’s pieces. And, while his bigger artwork commands higher prices, it was great when he came out with this simple series for a lower price. I was lucky enough to order a blue “At Home Together” Edition Hand Painted House just before he stopped making them.
