Michael Roy (Birdcap) – Various Work

Michael Roy is a contemporary street artist working under the moniker Birdcap. Born during the Reagan administration in an indistinct small town in Mississippi, Roy now lives out of his suitcase, painting murals from city to city with installed works in places as far flung as Tokyo and New York. His work is inspired by an international hodgepodge of religious and mythological themes in combination with a dedicated nostalgia for the Saturday morning cartoons of his childhood. Taking visual and narrative cues from the places he travels, Roy’s work builds on the cultural accumulation of a transient life. Roy enjoys long walks in congested cities, pineapples, and daydreaming about an alternate reality in which he is a rapper.
