HOWL Art by Micklangelo

Micklangelo, a visual creator and conceptual thinker, is fascinated with how the 1960s revolution of thought and sensibility continues. He describes Allen Ginsberg’s HOWL as one of the “genetic markers” in the development of modern culture and notes that while expressing his own personal turmoil within the rigid moral confines of 1950’s America, Ginsberg touched a universal nerve, which helped to ignite the counterculture forming within the world’s dissatisfied youth. Political, social, and sexual themes are explored and described in language so poetical that the poem’s power is still relevant today.
