Paintings by Mitch Griffiths

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 31, 2013
Mitch Griffith's first, but unexpected success came when he painted a portrait of the boxer Chris Eubank and sent it to his agent. Eubank ended up loving the portrait and commisioning Griffith to a series of pictures to promote his matches. His work ranges from commercial illustration to magazine covers and muals. The self-taught artist's highly detailed, figurative paintings are honest and direct, experessing in anxiety about modern life.
