“Working with a diverse range of media Stuart Mitchell creates paintings, prints, moving image and installations exploring the extremes of human experience, subconscious imagary, altered states, ritual and superstition. Stuart’s portraits in oil evolve through exploration of existing imagery, observation and subconscious input which develop into rich works of imagination.”
After working in the creative industries for eleven years, Stuart studied Digital Art and Technology with i-DAT at University of Plymouth. During this study he was offered the post of Digital Media Coordinator at Exeter Phoenix where he remained for seven years before relocating to Bristol, UK. He then freelanced as Digital Editor at Situations, at the time part of the University of West of England, where he managed the development of the digital engagement programme surrounding Alex Hartley‘s ‘Nowhereisland‘.
