' Taking the Mickey' is a new original work by Gavin Mitchell, a London-based artist and photographer who reworks found objects to explore our relationship with images and ideas from popular culture.
Gavin Mitchell’s portfolio is always ‘work in progress’ whether creating art or observing (sketches). 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 to concentrate on getting a proper job. However a career in design and production, whilst allowing him, within reason to indulge in creative fantasies, never really fully satisfied his artistic appetite. Gavin Mitchell returned to be a full-time artist, to use his talents as a photographer, print-maker and collagist in an attempt to create images that resonate and appeal.
