I’ve been a fan of Mike Giant for a long time, and I still am to this day. When I first saw this documentary featuring Mike Giant and Mike Maxwell, I had to watch to it. Thankfully we don’t have to wait to watch it, as it’s already available to purchase via download or on DVD.
WORKING CLASS TELLS THE TALE OF UNDERGROUND ARTISTS MIKE GIANT AND MIKE MAXWELL AND THEIR DECADE LONG FRIENDSHIP THAT STARTED WITH A TATTOO. THE STORY IS TOLD THROUGH THE CITIES THEY CALL HOME BY, CUTTING BACK AND FOURTH BETWEEN THE NEIGHBORHOODS OF SAN FRANCISCO AND SAN DIEGO, AS THE ARTISTS TALK ABOUT ART AND LIFE.
LOOSELY BASED ON CHARLES DICKEN’S BOOK “THE TALE OF TWO CITIES”. THE FILM IS DIVIDED INTO TWO “BOOKS” BOOK 1 -ART AND BOOK 2- LIFE, WHICH SHOWS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THEIR LIFE PHILOSOPHIES AND THE WORK THEY CREATE. THE TWO MIKES HAVE BEEN ALLIES IN UNDERGROUND ART FOR OVER A DECADE AND HAVE BOTH GAINED RECOGNITION FOR THEIR SHARPLY DRAWN CHARACTERS INSPIRED BY THE WORKING CLASS.
