Letter of Authenticity
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
- Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
Artist Mike Giant has been working as a full time artist since 1993 when he began working the in-house graphic artist for Think Skateboards in San Francisco. Since then the 6'4 Giant has made a living as a renaissance man, thriving equally as both a fine artist and freelance artist. Even at a quick glance, it's easy to see why over the last 23 years Giant has also made a name for himself in the graffiti and tattoo worlds.
Now 45, Giant currently resides in rural Boulder, Colorado where he continues to refine his various crafts, thriving as a modern day practicing Buddhist who can vacillate comfortably between the museum crowd and gutter punks, and everything in between.
