Mike Perry: Stop Censoring Your Work


About this talk

Artist Mike Perry has worked with clients and collaborators from Comedy Central’s ‘Broad City’ to brands like Ray-Ban. In his 99U talk, Perry offers a glimpse inside his id-driven creative vision, and makes a case for allowing your work to provoke, titillate, and show respect for your audience.

About Mike Perry

Mike Perry is an artist, animator, creative director, brand consultant, poet, and designer. His work encompasses paintings, drawings, sculptures, art installations, books, murals, all of which are made to conjure that feeling of soul-soaring you have when you stare into distant galaxies on a dark night, when you go on long journeys into the imagination, when you laugh and can’t stop laughing.

The key to Perry’s working method is the recognition that art and objects, go through many iterations—discoveries, coverings, uncoverings—until they’re finished; people do the same until they are fully revealed. He likes to cultivate collectives of celebration, exhibition, and revelation.
