Donald Mitchell’s early work consisted primarily of obsessively crosshatched fields of lines that covered the page and hid any trace of an underlying image. Over time, Donald started to reveal the faces and forms that he had buried on the page. Donald’s prolific work is now filled with figures in motion and repose, and his trademark has become a tightly composed, graphically sophisticated page of crowded figures. Donald has attended Creative Growth since 1976 and has exhibited work at Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco, Gavin Brown’s enterprise, New York, the Collection de L’Art Brut, Lausanne, and ABCD, Paris.
Born, 1951, San Francisco, CA.
