"My name is Michael Chase. I was born in 1984. I grew up in the suburbs of Spokane, Washington. I became interested in drawing when I was very young. I took a variety of art classes growing up - figure drawing, painting, pottery, cartooning, and many more. Toward the end of high school I started delving into pixel art. In my early twenties I took a few years to study Theravada Buddhism and practice meditation. I felt a need to make art again after the long break and started using a camera as my tool."
"The idea of impermanence is a central theme in my work. I use color, texture, and composition to highlight the subject of decay. The main objective of my work is to draw attention to the passing of time and immediacy of separation. I also want to show the viewer that beauty can be found in unlikely places."
