Our next Influencer can easily be said to be one of the Atlanta art scene stables. As former gallery manager at MINT gallery and an accomplished artist himself, Mike Germon (ARTIST) has been to more art shows in one night than most go to in 3 months. Mike works in the medium of collage and installations and draws from the visual elements of religious and scientific source materials. To see some of his work visit his site. (www.mikegermon.com) Mike is currently working on a new book which will feature his new works and will be accompanied by short stories and possibly poems by a few contributing writers. Expect to see the kickstarter for that and more of his work in the months to come.
