If you’re going to remodel your kitchen, be sure to put one of Mike Geno’s meat paintings on your wall so you can stare at bacon while you eat it. When we first met Mike Geno in February, we thought he was just a talented guy with a passion for meat art. Turns out, he’s a community activist, too.
Mike was looking for a way to connect with other artists like himself. We met several meat artists at BAconfest in San Francisco a while back, and it’s safe to assume there are others like them all over the place. What Mike started is the Meat Artists Blog, dedicated to all things in the world of artistically-arranged meat. In his words from the site’s inaugural post…
“If you’d like the join this site, just email me at : email@example.com and let me know how to link you to the site. I’ll add you to the list of artists, I can add your pictures to our flickr account that feeds our slide show and also I can add you as a featured artist.
This site can be a place to communicate and for posting announcements of new work or exhibitions. Send info and/or links relating to meat/art please.”
This site may seem corny on the surface, but we support an outlet that strives to bring artists together who might not otherwise ever get to meet each other. This is a really important thing, and we salute Mike for his efforts and his passion.
Good luck Mike!
