Superstudio Podcast #02 - MIKE NESBIT

Recorded in Los Angeles, December 20, 2020

Mike Nesbit is an LA-based fine artist who likes to produce work through community engagement within and outside California.  Nesbit’s ability to engage local museums, institutions, design organizations, and media outlets allows his ambitious artworks to become collaborative realities, transforming his art into objects that contain a sense of shared pride and ownership with the communities involved in their manufacturing and maintenance. With a background in architecture, his multidisciplinary skill-set greatly informs his artwork, allowing Nesbit to bridge the worlds of art and architecture with a focus on technique, repetition, and space.  He received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles.  Previous, to Art and Architecture Nesbit, played professional baseball with the Seattle Mariners.
