"Mirko, who grew up in Los Angeles’ South Bay – a sleepy suburban beach town that became a hardcore and punk breeding ground starting in the late 70s – is a visual artist whose work can most frequently be found on the bottom of skateboard decks, on people’s arms as tattoos, and across the chest of T-shirts for surf and skate brands like, Globe, Insight, Roark Revival, and Enjoi, to name a few. Having grown up in Redondo Beach, Mirko’s day-to-day was embedded in the South Bay’s intertwined subcultures of skateboarding, surfing, and punk; particular lifestyles and attitudes that continue to influence and inform Mirko’s doodles, designs, photography, and graphics." - HAVOC TV
