Southern California artist Mike Maxwell does not trust the five senses; he doesn’t believe in what he can see, smell, touch, listen or taste. He only believes in ideas.

Ideas of a genealogical past, quantum physics, psycodelia, shamanism, and what is out there that cannot be seen. His quantive portraits of American steampunks bearded men retell a past future story of a time of exploration, of what is or what might be. When he is not searching, he is interviewing on his podcast the raddest artists out there.
