About Mike Berg
For the past twenty years, New York artist, Mike Berg, born and raised in the American West, has divided his time between Istanbul, New York, and his ranch in Eastern Washington.
“Berg is a kind of aesthetic anarchist, disrupting the natural processes of decay and organizing his interventions in exquisitely layered abstraction.” Linda Yablonsky
Starting as a painter, the artist moved to making sculpture based in process and chance. Since coming to Turkey, Berg has made work in collaboration with experts in nakış and weaving in Uzbekistan, Armenia and Turkey. For fifteen years, he’s worked with the three Togay brothers, gifted metal workers in Istanbul.
Berg has shown extensively nationally and internationally. His work can be found in museums and private collections around the globe.
