Michael C. Hsiung

Born in Chinatown, Los Angeles, Michael C. Hsiung is known for his black-and-white pen and ink drawings. His work features a range of "strangely rotund characters from fantastical creatures, such as centaurs and mermen to somewhat contemporary and/or old fashion bearded males" often celebrating, imbibing, and rebel-rousing. Currently living with his wife Rachel in Los Angeles, he spends his days drawing, making prints, stickers, zines, collaborating with his sister, artist Pearl Hsiung, under the Fight To The Death moniker, and doing freelance work. He also plays Dungeons & Dragons when he can. His illustrations and artwork have featured in Dr. Martens, Dwindle / Enjoi Skateboards, Momentum Wheels, Matix, Ambiguous Clothing, Oxford American Magazine, Grove made, Scout Books, VICE magazine, Amigos Skateboards, and most recently FUSE. He has also exhibited in various galleries, including East of Eden at Barnsdall Park, 2008 Helsinki Biennial, Giant Robot, Slingluff Gallery, Hurley, and recently had his first solo show "So Far, So Good, So What” which opened February 8th at THIS gallery.
