'Speaking of the Arts': Mike Stasny
Mike Stasny is an Atlanta artist who creates unique sculptures from broken furniture or building materials. He comes from a long line of eccentric artists.
“I’m motivated and inspired by the same things I was at four, but now, at age 40, I’m able to do those boyish escapism things on a much larger scale,” said Stasny.
He has lived in Atlanta for the last 10 years and his creative community has been a big reason he has stayed in the city.
“My favorite place to see new art would be the studio spaces of artists I like. You get to see the work in its natural habitat before it reaches a museum or a cleaned-up gallery space,” said Stasny.
You can see his artwork at Underground Atlanta or on his Instagram.
