Series 7 - Episode 3: Michael Scoggins - AoaP Summer Auction

The Art on a Postcard Summer Auction artist in question today is Michael Scoggins. In the episode Rosa and Michael talk about democratising art, elitism within the art world, connecting with your child in your creative practise and much more. Michael Scoggins is an American artist best known for his works on notebook paper which feign the attitude of a petulant adolescent doodling. Similarly to the works of David Shrigley, the artist utilizes cynicism, irony, and novice drawing. Scoggins came to this style by revisiting his own childhood sketchbooks and realizing how disarmingly truthful they were in comparison to the paintings he had been making as an adult. His alter-ego, a personality reminiscent of the Dadaist tradition, Michael S., presents the artist as an uninhibited child. Born in 1973 in Washington D.C., he received his MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006. Today, his works are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, CA, and the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, GA, among others. Scoggins lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Michael Scoggins has generously donated Lots 311 and 312 to the Art on a Postcard Summer Auction to help raise money for The Hepatitis C Trust. Bidding starts at just £50 for each lot. 24th June- 8th July 2021 Learn more information about The Hepatitis C Trust on their website: Got questions for Rosa? Get in touch at:
