About the guy

B. 1992  Providence, Rhode Island

Possibly destined for the west, every move has taken him farther from his roots. From New York, to Colorado, and now to California, the adventure is just beginning.

Mike Battey has recently graduated MFA program at San Jose State University as of May 2018. His art practice is concerned wholly around environmental issues and California water situation. He is a self-taught artist of the Mordancage medium, while also working with Lumen/Photogram and cyanotype amongst other processes. Separately, his general and commercial photography is adventure, exploration and lifestyle inspired of travel through California’s Sierra Nevada with his dog, Gansett.
