Michael Conway is a freelance visual artist from Chicago, born on the south side and currently
living in the city’s Albany Park neighborhood with his wife and cat. Humor
is central to his body of work, around which fantasies, scenes from life, popular culture, and
punk culture are presented in tangents, either seamlessly woven or forcibly bent.
Michael’s practice is driven by an obsession with drawing. His current project is a series in
which he completes a drawing every day during 2014 and post it to various social media outlets.
These drawings have become the foundation for his recent work. As of this time, the project
has spawned 5 zines, an assortment of silk screened posters, photographs, and self-contained
drawing series’. The recurring themes lend a journal-esque quality to the project, while the
immediate public exposure asserts that each entry is part of a conversation. These drawings
are posted to his Facebook page, as well as on Instagram (@michaelfinnconway), Twitter
(@michaelfconway), and Tumblr (michaelfinnconway.tumblr.com)
