Hello there fellow art lovers, today’s Artist Spotlight is on one of my newest favs, Mike Mitchell, I recently discovered him through one of my favorite art site Mondotees, which recently held a gallery showing of his most recent work, a collection of Marvel inspired artwork. Mike Mitchell is an American artist in Austin, TX, known for his pop surrealism and poster prints. Now if you didn’t know Mondotees is one of the most popular and in demand producers of what I consider fine art posters, that are extremely sought after and highly collectible. They commission amazing pop culture artworks from amazing talents, the posters cover a wide range of topics like music, movies, comics, games, cartoons, and TV shows, so your desire to represent your love for something can definitely be represented thru beautiful poster form. So it was a amazing thing that Mondotees decided to showcase Mike Mitchell’s artwork because his work definitely is a site to behold, covering one of my most beloved topic, Marvel Comics.
His art style borders on the real to the cartoony at times, he use a mix of styles to accomplish different effects, some artwork is very vector base in style giving him bold sharp line work, as well as a combination of painting style where you get good tonal value. His also plain contrasting solid color backgrounds to make the either pop and/or stand out from the background. My most favorite is his portrait series, where he takes famous pop culture characters and does side portraits of them, I especially love his recent portrait series where he did side portrait versions of Marvel Comic book characters.
