Born in the Philippines in 1969, Mike Chavez (MIGS) studied at the Queensland College of the Arts, Brisbane from 1988 to 1990. Chavez's work comes out of a pop sensibility with its use of bold, found images, slogans and repetition to explore themes around Australian identity, racism and parochialism. Chavez draws on aspects of his Filipino heritage and the culture of Queensland and applies an ironic post-modern approach.
