The products of popular culture such as album covers, or the many portraits of ordinary and famous dakarois are enhanced by a number of visual strategies borrowed from Pop Art. Particularly influenced by Roy Lichtenstein from whom he appropriates his hallmark Ben-Day dots, Michea re-enacts the foundational strategies of copy and reproduction promoted by artists of the 1960s – including Andy Warhol and Lichtenstein himself.
His technique consists of the employment of strident blocks of colour to deliver a hard-edged imagery reminiscent of comic strips.
