Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Saturday, April 19, 2014

Excelsior! Los Angeles-based artist Mike Mitchell is back with his awe-inspiring portraits at "Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo", his latest show at the Mondo Gallery set to run from 26 April to 25 May and focusing on the popular characters from Marvel Comics. 



While we have previously featured the works of Mike Mitchell, we were finally swept away by the brilliant Los Angeles-based artist last April with the launch of the artist's solo gallery show by Mondo. An exercise in straight-up ingenious artwork and exciting design in minimalism, the series presented in the show contained side portraits of some of the most colorful personalities we have seen in cinematic history from Oldboy's Oh Dae-su, Jamie Foxx's Django, to They Live's Roddy Piper.


This year, in collaboration with the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Mitchell is back with a vengeance with “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo”, a gallery of portraits of the popular characters of Marvel Comics. 




From the press release:

MONDO’S SPECIAL MARVEL SHOW FEATURES
 THE ARTWORK OF MIKE MITCHELL
A Collection of Portraits From Marvel’s Vast Library of Characters

Austin, TX— Tuesday, April 15, 2014– Mondo announces “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo” a comics-themed show featuring artist Mike Mitchell’s iconic portraits of Marvel’s huge stable of heroes and villains, running from April 25th through May 17th. The characters of The Avengers, X-Men and Spider-man will be represented along with many others from Marvel’s incredible library. The opening night event will be Friday, April 25th from 7 – 10pm at the Mondo Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Artist Mike Mitchell will be in attendance.

“My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There’s a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting. This has easily been the most ambitious project I’ve ever taken on, and it’s due in part to my love for their universe; which is fictional by definition, but real in my mind and in the minds of others,” said Mitchell.


So without further ado, hit the jump to check out some of Mitchell’s marvelous take on iconic Marvel characters the likes of Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Black Cat, Bullseye, Luke Cage, and Mysterio.
