Mike Calway-Fagen produces work that is unabashedly both harsh and tender. Unbowed by either the plenitude or the injustice of existence, he brings forth both, asking us to see it all with clear eyes and soft hearts, and without fear. Mr. Calway-Fagen has shown across the country and abroad in venues such as Gazelli Art in London, the southXeast Biennial in Florida, QED Gallery in Los Angeles, Vox Populi and the ICA in Philadelphia, Islip Art Museum and Mixed Greens in New York, Banff Center in Alberta Canada, and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. He has attended residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Sculpture Space, and others. In 2008 he received Tennessee's Individual Artist Grant. His work has been reviewed in such magazines as Art Papers, ArtUS, and World Sculpture Magazine. He received a BFA from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 2006 and is currently pursuing his MFA at the University of California in San Diego.
