Mike Kimball is an artist in love with the city. He is best known for his paintings and prints of urban landscapes that seem to inhabit the worlds of both representation and abstraction simultaneously.
Lately, Kimball has been focusing on the old cars and trucks he comes upon while traveling the backroads of New Mexico.
Kimball has exhibited his work both nationally and and internationally. He is a member of the California Society of Printmakers, and has printed at many professional printmaking studios including the Centrum Franz Masereel studios in Kasterlee, Belgium, the KALA institute in Berkeley, CA and Lynch Pin Press in Taos, NM.
He has been a guest artist at the Southwest Print Fiesta in Silver City, NM, the "Roadworks" show at the San Francisco Center for the Book, and the Artspace at Untitled in Oklahoma City, where his oversize linoleum block prints were printed with steamrollers.
Kimball currently teaches printmaking at the Santa Fe Community College, Santa Fe, and works in his painting studio in Placitas, NM.
