Photographer, Artist, and Poet Michael Loren Butkovich works have been published in such literary magazines as The Main Street Rag Review, The Sagebrush Review, and various web-base art / photography sites and competions.
A truly unique individual, Butkovich's views and concepts within art, mimics at times Jean Michel Basquiat within his crudeness of work, hinting lightly of Andy Warhol in questioning societies various subject matters, and having found himself in recent times, Butkovich has a strong uniqueness all his own, much as Jackson Pollock and Vincent Van Gogh had themselves done in self discovery.
Within Butkovich's poems and writings likewise (found on Amazon.com under Books, type in Michael L. Butkovich) these descriptions can be found with a hints of a Gonzo style of writing and a heavily blunt honesty of Charles Bukowski.
Overall, in loving or hating Butkovich's views, concepts, works and styles, one thing in truth that all must admit of this artist, is that his "In You Face Style" cannot be ignored....and no matter what genre he works in, he challenges you to think, consider, and ponder on an array of subjects most people, artist as well, steer away from.
