Mike Howat is a NH-based painter. His work explores collective memory, Americana and urban isolation. Since earning his B.F.A. from New Hampshire Institute of Art in 2014, he has been actively engaged in the New England art scene and exhibits regularly in galleries across the country. When not in his studio, he’s likely wandering the coast or the White Mountains.
Mike's current body of work plays with atmospherics and fragments of memory explored through vernacular architecture and interiors. The paintings are collaged and assembled elements of different buildings, places, and pieces of memories, pulled together into a cogent space through the use of light.
