The Chicago Art Department was founded by three young artists with university teaching experience.

Mike studies various media, working primarily in video and design. Since graduating with his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002, Mike has been teaching video and design classes part-time at both Depaul University and SAIC. He likes to transfer digital files onto canvas, make videos, and create live visuals for special events.

Outside of CAD, this year Mike will be working with Zero One Projects (along with Nat Soti), curating a media literacy program for high school students (for Cinema/Chicago), and teaching graduate projects at the SAIC's department of Visual Communication. Look for his video work in various online and touring festivals, including this year's Resfest (www.resfest.com).


Nathan teaches video art, multimedia and intermedia courses at St. Xavier University in the Art & Design department.

Nathan's work combines painting, sound, video, annimation, and installation to create curious hybrid artforms. His work can be seen around Chicago in clubs and galleries where he presents ROOK TV, a live combination of video paintings and video performances.

Nathan received his MFA from the intermedia program at the University of Iowa




As an interMEDIA artist, Nat possesses a wealth of experience in graphic design, digital video, writing and music. Nat has also dabbled in drawing, painting, architecture, and 3D-animation.

Nat earned a Post-Bacclaureate Certificate and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Nat's undergraduate studies were in Political Science and Philosophy, graduating with a BA from Georgetown University.

As a recent MFA graduate, Nat already has a significant amount of teaching experience. Nat has taught design classes at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and DePaul University.
