Me

Hi. My name is Michael, and I’m an artist living in Austria. You can find some of my murals, stencils, linocut, and songs, online at http://media.michaelmaurer.net.

The goal of the blog changed a bit over the years. Initially, in 2009, it was supposed to advertise my writing chops. The idea was to send a couple of blog entries to magazines & newspapers, and see if they want me to write for them. There were a couple of interested media outlets, but it turned out they weren’t very interested in paying a lot. Or a little. One of the interested newspapers is now bankrupt, I believe.

Anyway, after trying to enjoy working in the media industry for a couple of years (ORF ON, Konsument), I decided to call it quits and focus on art instead. I’ve been writing on a regular basis since I was 18, but in the last decade I’ve started experimenting with different forms of expression. I keep bouncing between art and music and the written word, although currently I believe the bouncing is about to stabilize. There’s some more stuff coming out in 2016, but I don’t really want to shed more detail on that. You will -uh- be able to experience it online.

If you want to keep in touch, you’re invited to follow me on Twitter, Google+, or Instagram. Twitter is the only social medium I frequent on a daily basis. If you like one of my songs, murals, or blog entries, show your gratitude by gifting me items from my Amazon wishlist.
