This exhibition round includes works by Sam Mitchell which will be on view in the First Floor Ramp Gallery from February 27-April 20 2019.
From the artist:
The most fascinating thing that I can draw is the human face. Sometimes my portraits are loose and gestural and other times they are more detailed and refined. I begin with quick pencil sketches, then replicate the work with brush pens and finally color the work digitally.
Many of the portraits are of fictional characters who I idolized from television or movies while others are real people who inspired me through their own art or vision for a better world.
