Today we’re featuring Mizu, an artist who works on canvas, body painting, jewelry and clothing design in a variety of media. Mizu is currently based Denver, Colorado, where he creates works of spacey psychedelia are filled with multitudinous detail.

Mizu paints on a variety of surfaces, from canvas, to vinyl records to walls. I really enjoy the artist’s vinyl record pieces – the uniform, circular surfaces provide the perfect space to contain his complex and colourful works. Mizu has a very distinctive painting style, though it seems to vary in levels of intensity over different works. Some works feature fractal-esque detailing, with layers of colourful paint that seem to stretch far into the distance. Desert scenes juxtaposed with outer space imagery are another common motif.

The artist has created his own style of graffiti – micro-graffiti. In these works, Mizu uses spray paint with stencils to create graffiti and street-art murals on small cinder blocks or fragments of concrete. It’s a rather interesting take on this street-art style!
