Mike Stasny is an installation artist, performance artist, and sculptor from the midwest currently working out of Atlanta. He primarily works with raw building materials and broken furniture converting them into “creatures” inspired by natural history museums, sci-fi, and his grandfather - an eccentric taxidermist whom let Mike play in his basement with numerous dead things. His most notorious work to date is “what what in the butt” - a youtube viral video that conflates homosexuality, blackness, and religion into an absurd / escapist cartoon like universe. On occasion, he provides “MUSIC YOU NEED” for art related events.
An Atlanta native, Cole has always strived to be a true individual. Growing up in holistic, all-natural environments he learned early on the importance of sustainability & thinking outside the box. Sinking his teeth into the hospitality industry enabled him to experiment with different approaches to culinary crafting, eventually finding that where he shined the most was in engaging with new people & sharing his passion for culinary creativity.
