Greg Mike has left a lasting impression on art in the city and has killed it this year between consistently painting huge murals, putting together and founding Outerspace Project, building up ABV Agency and Gallery, and locking himself in a room for two weeks this past July with nothing but black ink, brushes, and the bare necessities to fill eight walls at Restaurant Holmes.

Bailey, who enjoyed sold-out shows here and in New York last year, has Magic City coming up this fall at the Birmingham Museum of Art and a solo show at Fay Gold Gallery. less...
