Mike Mitchell header

Is your pop culture art collection cluttered with too many huge movie posters? Do you have a full stack of 27 x 40 inch paper laying around and not enough wall space to display? Are you looking for something smaller, more tasteful but still as awesome and exciting? Mike Mitchell is here to help.

Mitchell is one of the most popular artists out there today. He first gained national attention with his “I’m With Coco” poster for Conan O’Brien and has continued to do beautiful work putting a unique spin on popular culture.

This one takes popular, and some not-so-popular, movie characters and provides them each with a detailed, classy portrait.

The exhibit opens Friday April 26 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and, after the jump, you can see about half the images in the show. Read More »
