About the Artist

Mike Oldcorn is a creative designer from London, UK, but currently living in Boston, MA. After graduating from BU with a Bachelors in Graphic Design (originally wanting to pursue painting and fine arts), his love for music and technology drew him towards combining audio and visual information. His Synesthetic paintings are a result of these passions, of which he’s sold over 40 this year.

He creates these by extracting the amplitude values from songs, plotting these values on a map and then using the map to create the piece. He set up a store and has been getting more and more requests from people to paint their favorite song. His work was discovered on social media and he was asked to join the RAW artists worldwide collective. Since then he has been invited to and has shown work at several events for galleries and businesses.

He is heavily influenced by European (mainly UK) music and fashion. In terms of inspiring artists, he shows a passion and respect for several artists including Michael Craig-Martin, Patrick Caulfied, Wassily Kandinsky and Alberto Giacometti.
