Typoe (Michael Andrew Gran) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice plays upon the constant tension between the dark recesses of the urban underground and the shimmering bling of celebrity. With both gravitas and irreverence his work might be regarded as a contemporary memento mori with a smile.
Typoe’s work evolves in response to a given situation or environment and he often works with gunpowder, fire, plastic, spray paint and found objects in the creation of his works and installations., the messenger that while laughing, points to hypocrisy and excess while announcing the melancholy of time lost.
Based in Miami, Typoe has participated in gallery and museum shows around the world and exhibited his work in Mexico City, Mexico, New York, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Argentina and Basel ,Switzerland. Typoe is cofounder and Creative Director of PRIMARY, an art collective and gallery in Miami.
