“ Ribonucleic Acid “

Housepaint on wood

”We cant see atoms and molecules, but they’re there. Don’t let bullshitters tell you otherwise. Ribonucleic acid doesn’t give a shit about your party, beliefs, race, brains or stupidity. It just does it’s thing. And right now it’s teaching us an epic lesson: ignore science at your own peril. Be Smart and safe. See you down the road.” 

Mike Shine's interests range from surfing to carnivals, and his dynamic approach to art making manifests as immersive installations, which he's created throughout the Bay Area at local museums, galleries, and even at his home in Bolinas, "The Shine Shack." His artwork is inspired by carnival aesthetics and his own narrative about Dr. Flotsam, a clown character who represents the darker aspects of life, and was inspired by the legend of Faust and the fictional demon, Mephistopheles.
