ADULT KILLER
Mike Diana‘s style is one of the most unforgettable in contemporary painting and drawing; the bright bold colours of western advertising are combined with rough black lines drawn with the audacity of a Japanese master to form the twisted characters that populate his world. Diana became known in the early nineties for his terrifying child-like drawings published in his Boiled Angel papers.

IT’S A WAR OUT THERE
As usual, American Independence Day (4th of July), 2004, in Berlin was abound in protests against the U.S.A., but the “Girl-Groups Against Bush” concert at the Mudd Club in East Berlin was the most appealing to me.

She has had a professional education, so one would imagine that she is aware of what present-day art practice likes most and likes least. It is not for me to judge, maybe she knows it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t. It…

SEX, VIOLENCE AND CATHOLICISM
It is the task of an artist to wake sleeping minds, who often condemn those around them, unwittingly, by judging first and understanding second. A prolific comic book artist, named Mike Diana, is one of those artists. He is the first illustrator in Americas history to get arrested and convicted for his drawings. He is gentle, thoughtful and as considerate as you would want a person to be. At…
