Paul David Mitchell works in a variety of media from sculpture and installation to print and text. Often using found and readily available materials such as cardboard and wood, there is a theatrical, performative energy to his practice.
His work often stages preludes and aftermaths as a way to explore our complex relationship to life events. There is a feeling of fragility and precariousness in much of his work, evoking a sense of the other-worldly.
He studied Fine Art at the University of Wales and at Pratt Institute, New York. He has an MA in Psychoanalytic studies and completed his MA in Fine Art from Kingston University, London in 2015. Insta; pdmitch_
