“Blu” comes from Chicago artist Michael Thompson's most recent kite collection. Inspired by the writings of Philip K. Dick, Thompson plays with interactions of the contemporary with the future. "Blu" combines literary influences with the street art styles of his studio mates. Creating a canvas of split bamboo and stretched muslin, he collages bits of paper into an abstract composition of shapes, symbols, and patterns. Building on over a decade of internationally exhibited kite art, Thompson's most recent works were featured in a highly anticipated upcoming television series.
