Internationally-renowned, New York-based contemporary artist Michael Scoggins meticulously creates by hand spiral-bound notebook pages on a colossal scale. On these large works, Scoggins draws and scrawls often in the guise of his childhood alter-ego "Michael S." The artist appropriates popular imagery and takes a critical stance on contemporary politics, historical reflections and the formation of cultural identities and biases.
