Covington Artist Battles Cancer, Partners Create Video & Poster in Support

One of the driving forces behind Covington's BLDG, "a creative refuge" on Pike Street, is battling neuroendocrine cancer.
Ten years ago, Mke Amann, 32, bought the BLDG's building on Pike Street and since then transformed its dusty walls into an international Mecca for art and design with some of the biggest names in contemporary art like Faile, VHILS, and The London Police. His design reach has touched such brands as Knob Creek, Gillette, and Pringles.
Amann also recently became a father for the first time and even with his chemo on Mondays, hospital stays, and surgeries, he still show up every day that he can in his Covington studio with Juno, his doberman, by his side.
To offset expenses accrued from doctor's bills and traveling to and from MD Anderson (Houston, TX) and Johns Hopkins (Baltimore, MD), BLDG created Undefeated, a web video of Mike's fight and a special screen print poster to help support the Amann family during Mike's courageous battle.
100% of all screen print purchases will go directly to the Amann family. All prints are 18"x24", 3-color, hand-pulled screen prints with neon ink and are individually embossed, signed and numbered, purchase price $25.
