We caught up with Bushwick based artist Michael Alan to hear more about his live installation events. Michael, tell us about you, and how you got into art? I drew to escape, NYC in 1982 was not as safe as it is now, art for me was healing and it wasn’t art, it just was, Art is the same for me now, except New York is different. I was looked at as a bizarre kid, making art all the time and not having any friends. My best friend, who became my adopted brother by my mom, (special moment) passed away.
