Mike Dargas was born in 1983 in Cologne, Germany. Inspired by artists such as Dali, Caravaggio and H.R. Giger, Mike Dargas has studied various painting techniques since his early childhood when he developed a passion for realism, which over the years has developed into hyper-realism. He attracted attention at age eleven recreating old master paintings with pastel and chalk on the pavement in front of Cologne Cathedral. Shortly after, Dargas graduated in his youth from an adult art class after only one and a half years. Through these classes coupled with independent study, Dargas has learned and honed different techniques in painting and three dimensional art. Mike Dargas has exhibited internationally throughout Germany, Belgium, London, Spain, Turkey, and Austria. His works are included in numerous private collections and have been featured in international art fairs such as Contemporary Istanbul, Art Miami, Stroke, and Art New York.
