As the lethargic lyricist, songwriter and frontman for the band Supersism, Michael digs into his songs with an animistic edge and releases that energy in a series of cathartic screams and guitar feedback. However, Michael’s solo work is more folk-oriented, inspired by the likes of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Elliott Smith and Syd Barrett, just to name a few.
Away from the music, Michael creates experimental, macabre films. Often extremely metaphorical in nature, his films are twisted and dark yet humorous and witty; often with a distinct visual style: high contrast black and white, fisheye lenses and simple titles created with san-serif fonts.
With brush and paint, Michael’s visual art is best described as manic marks of intense artistic fury. Heavily inspired by pop art, surrealism and neo –expressionism, his body of work is all across the spectrum.
