'Body Map I' is a limited edition by Gavin Mitchell, part of a brand new series where the artist combines vintage images of maps and depictions of the human body from medical treatises. Gavin is a London-based artist and photographer who reworks found objects to explore the relationship between East and West.
Having graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art, Gavin Mitchell chose to take an extended sabbatical from sugar tints, soft grounds, solarisation and f-stops for a career in design and production, which still allowed him to indulge in creative fantasies. But this never really fully satisfied his artistic appetite.
'My own photography or ‘found’ material provide me with the origins from which my artwork is created, trawling through car boot sales, junk shops and antiques fairs, anything that catches my eye. The story behind my most recognised work started with finding a vintage Japanese postcard with enigmatic images of Geishas. Coincidentally I also found a vintage Playboy magazine at the same car boot sale. The idea of East Meets West/Culture Clash began there.'
