Mitch Mitchell

An interdisciplinary artist specializing in printing art, Mitch Mitchell was born in the prairies of the Midwestern United States, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Illinois State University before receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from the University of Alberta. His studio practice ranges from 2D prints and photographs to 3D installations based on prints. His series of works offer an emotional and sublime interpretation of the landscape in its relationship to the body, as the movements and transformations imposed on the territory by the mental strategy of development unfold. Mitchell, whose work has been featured in a number of solo and group exhibitions in Canada and abroad, has also been chosen to represent Canada at the Douro Engraving Biennale in Portugal (2010 and 2012) and the Contemporary Canadian Engraving Exhibition at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Chongqing, China. His works, which have won him numerous national and international awards, are part of museum and private collections, including those of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Alberta Museum of Fine Arts.
