Mike Stasny is an artist and musician who moved to Atlanta a year ago. He’s celebrating his one-year anniversary with an exhibition at Boom City, the yearly roll-out exhibition of Dashboard Co-op’s new artists. Mike mingles Midwestern perspectives with general gregariousness and an enthusiasm for monsters to create work that aims for the sweet-spot between terrifying and enjoyable.
