Mike Maung

Mike Maung, born in 1965, found out at an early age he had a passion for painting after being exposed to Salvador Dali in the mid-70's. Other influences include Hieronymus Bosch, Roger Dean, Frank Frazetta and Patrick Woodroffe. Starting in acrylics to create other worlds on canvas, he progressed to large scale murals and stage sets for local theaters. While attending Massachusetts College of Art, he moved on to oil paintings and creating large scale sculptures. He has been building large temporary sculptures over the past decade incorporating light with common building materials to create spectacular centerpieces for events across the country. His work has been included in the Spectrum series, the Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, Volume 5 and has been displayed at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston in the early 1990's. Recent exhibits his work has been seen in include Arisia 2010 and BosCon 47.
