Michael Phillips is a United States postal worker and self-taught artist from Litchfield, New Hampshire, now based in Concord. His work brings together various antithetical and contradictory sentiments, as well as a wide range of influences, techniques, and mediums, into a cohesive body of work that puts more stock in an oeuvre than singular pictures. He attempts to elevate and highlight the accidental, overlooked, and non-art we pass every day: cracked city buildings, rusty metal, dirty walls, runny paint.

Phillips draws from his time as a musician and brings the ideas and ethos of DIY music scenes to his art. He is relatively new to the art scene but has shown in galleries in New Hampshire and is in private collections in Europe, Canada, and across the USA.
