100 Creatives

Tempe Artist Mikey Estes: 100 Creatives

Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 27. Mikey Estes.

Consuming culture's a large part of Mikey Estes' life.

The 23-year-old recently graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor of fine art in sculpture. And when he isn't working as a barista or creating art, the Tempe-based artist says he's busy reading art publications, listening to music and going to shows, or binge-watching video art and television.

Soon, though, he'll be more focused on his artistic output.
