American-born (1992) artist Mackenzie Spindler aka MIKISPIN brings contemporary art to visionary standards with a unique skill set and experience. Selling her first painting at age 8, she later went on to explore different mediums from film photography to metal working. The artist is known to implement her photographs into paintings, intrigued by concepts of time & space. She often uses paper and metal which make a raw, grungy yet clean aesthetic. Her past productions and collaborations with street artists fueled this creative direction inspired by the urban atmosphere, industrial influence, architecture, fashion, and social reform. Her camera is a tool in combination with different mediums that together create unique urban contemporary mixed medium artworks.
Mackenzie established MIKISPIN in 2010 in Saint Louis, Missouri, shooting promotional campaigns and recording artists such as Nelly and Debbie Harry. In 2011, MIKISPIN made way to Europe to build a creative portfolio which brought the artist to New York City in 2012. Here, she worked with primary art influencers and sought opportunities such as working in Andy Warhol's old Factory in Soho.
Spindler has had numerous solo exhibits in New York over the past 5 years and has showcased 2016 Art Basel Miami, 2016 LA Art Show, and 2017 Paris Fashion Week.
The young emerging artist currently resides in Lower East Side, NYC and MIKISPIN Studio in Greenpoint, BK welcomes public showings by scheduled walk throughs. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to visit the artist's studio.
