For this edition of Food Art Friday, we keep the meat train rollin’. After recently covering one of our favorite artists and meat connoisseurs, Alyson Thomas, I was psyched to get introduced to Mike Geno — known amongst some circles as ‘Meat Man Mike’. How could we go wrong?
Philadelphia-based artist, Mike Geno, a.k.a. Meat Man Mike, has earned his moniker in more ways than one. First, Mike actually worked as a meat cutter, while an undergrad at Temple University. That familiarity with the product, along with the typical financial hardships of an art major, is what led him to his subject matter of choice.
