Mingering Mike

Mingering Mike is a fictitious funk and soul recording artist created in the late 1960s as the subject of works of album art by a young Mike Stevens. Mingering Mike was rediscovered by record diggers Dori Hadar and Frank Beylotte who came across the art work at an open market. Mingering Mike had created a whole complex, yet nonexistent music career and had released more than 50 album covers in 10 years. All of the work took place in Mike's imagination, and in the vast collection of fake cardboard records and acapella home recordings that he made for himself as a teenager in Washington, D.C. in the late 1960s. He is represented by Hemphill Fine Arts.
