Inspired by Dalí, Kay Sage, Pollock, Peter Saul and Albert Oehlen, Flow State unanimously explores, juxtaposes and reconciles the three worlds of abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and surrealism, with Mikael’s signature idiom. Showcasing an array of vibrant canvases where colours and geometric shapes organically flow into one another, the exhibition echoes the mental and physical process behind the creation of art, and the experience of art.
As a self-described outsider, Mikael B is constantly breaking through barriers, operating between genres and carving his own path. As a result, Flow State is so much more than a typical white walls experience. Rather than accept the classic gallery format, Mikael has taken over everything from the gallery space to the walls themselves. From the moment you step in, you are entering Mikael’s futuristic abstract vision; a space coated in vinyl with a 3D effect that welcomes visitors to an immersive experience.
