2013’s Play me I’m yours public art project for Street Pianos Boston has Michael collaborating with a childhood friend and artist Frank Casazza (eyeformation link) Frank and Michael knew of each other growing up in Tewksbury/ Lowell. Their appreciation of skateboarding and art kept them in touch throughout the 80’s and 90’s however they never managed to find time to collaborate. As they grew up and went separate ways in art they reunited through mutual artist friends and always spoke of the day they could work together. Frank’s work is internationally recognized and has been enjoyed by Lowell residents for over 20 years. Together, they create a world filled with textured, urban decay both raw and colorful, layered with Frank’s energetic characters and signature voice. Their collaborative efforts in the Spring of 2013 were the first stages in what they call “Eye for an Eye”
