Myke Reilly, an American born abstract artist, learned to paint under the guidance of his uncle, mid-century desert painter Jerry Reilly. With his uncle's support and guidance Reilly became a prolific painter at a very young age and spent much of his childhood and teen years in front of his painters easel.
In 1978, At the age of 16, Reilly moved to San Francisco where he attracted significant international success as a recording artist, sound designer, interior designer and digital media designer. He collaborated with many noted artists of the period such as Rex Ray and Charly Brown and performed with noted pop groups Depeche Mode and Bauhaus. His dynamic sense of color and sound translated well into all forms of media and was supported by San Francisco's exploding high technology movement.
