About

Abstract conceptual painting. it has a lacquer resin like finish to it. it is not framed. Siren Bliss was born Michael Whipple in Salt Lake City in 1947. He attended the University of Utah, where he was a key participant in Paul McCarthy’s Upriver Skool—a 1969-70 festival described by one participant as a “a multi-media freak-out that filled the Union Ballroom with music, light, oversized art toys, and dancing craziness. Upon graduation, he, like McCarthy, migrated to Los Angeles, where he furthered his studies in art, became a disciple of Scientology, and later supported himself designing movie posters for Hollywood and painting commissions for celebrities like Mohammed Ali. Whipple went underground in 1984. He changed his name to Sky Jones and lived in seclusion—mostly in Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah—without a permanent address, bank accounts, or credit cards. He survived by bartering, trading tens of thousands of art works for rent, supplies, gemstones, luxury automobiles, and other items. Today, he lives under the name Siren Bliss somewhere in the United States.
