Mike Egan’s paintings tend to deal with life, death and religion. Through his experiences working in funeral homes for the last five years, he has become quite familiar with all three subjects. His inspiration comes from many different sources: The German Expressionists, stained glass windows, Halloween, Southern folk art, funeral homes, horror films, music, lowbrow/outsider art, Religious icons, etc. Egan likes to think that each painting is in some way a good bye to somebody who passed away, a funeral portrait.
Mike’s works can also be viewed in these past exhibits at Parlor Gallery
