Mike Howat is a visual artist and graduate of New Hampshire Institute of Art. His work focuses on the implications of our increasing industrialized and sprawling urban environments, explored through painting, mixed media, etching, and graphite drawings. He participates actively in the growing artist community in NH and has had a variety of shows in the area. His work can be seen at Mill Brook Gallery and Kelley Stelling Contemporary.
While predominately focusing on the gallery scene, Howat has also participated in various commercial commissions, including a large-scaled mural painting for DYN Headquarters in downtown Manchester, and work for Eastern National, designing magnets and decals of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln currently sold in Washington D.C.
Since 2016, Howat has taught at Kimball Jenkins School of Art and is the current artist-in-residence and serves on the Arts Committee.
