A Los Angeles native, Mike Quon was greatly influenced by his father, Milton Quon, one of the first Asian-American animators at The Walt Disney Companies and an accomplished watercolorist. After graduating from UCLA, where Mike studied with artists such as Ed Ruscha and Richard Diebenkorn, a voracious interest in people and street life drew him to New York.
Mike has immersed himself in his fine art side. “I have crafted my own unique expressionist style to interpret realism in a graphic contemporary way. My style involves transforming common, everyday objects into animated, energetic, and eye catching works of art, and I have a special interest in bringing architecture and landmarks to life.” Quon describes.
