Micah Rustichelli is a Meanjin-based, multidisciplinary artist working primarily in painting and performance art. Since 2016 Rustichelli has been developing an expanded practice which investigates the role of the self and the body in relation to art making. Through various physical limitations and challenges the artist is exploring the role of the subconscious in decision making, flow state and the dense amalgamation human knowledge and experiences which define these functions.

Rustichelli collides research into the realms of psychology and sociology with the visual language of mythology, religion and taboo, constructing a new mythological world for their work to inhabit.
