Vintage Film Portrait Friday: Artist Mike Ming


Vintage FILM Portrait FRIDAY: Artist Mike Ming

WALL/THERAPY just hit the streets of Rochester with amazingly talented muralists from Rochester and around the world! WALL\THERAPY is a public community-level intervention using mural art as a vehicle to address our collective need for inspiration. On a gorgeous summer day, I walked around with a friend and captured many artists working in the South Wedge Neighborhood, using my newest film camera.

This is Mike Ming, stepping back to survey his mural from a distance before jumping back in to paint!

Fun Fact: We went to RIT together decades ago. It was great to hear that he was one of the chosen artists to decorate our walls. This mural can be found on the left side of Personal FX on South Avenue.
