Ian Mitchell’s work celebrates the British landscape. His ideas come from walks during which he takes photographs and makes drawings, then he uses a computer to create the final digital drawings for his ‘Linescape’ prints.
“ ‘Linescapes’ are my unique delineation of the landscape based on a stripped down reality. My series of limited edition landscape prints celebrating the British Coast and Countryside pay homage to the early 20th Century travel posters, and draw on the reductive style of early twentieth century German and Swiss design. Using my original sketches and photographs, I refine and reduce the source material down to minimalist forms and shapes. Discarding clutter and using artistic licence as I go.”- Ian Mitchell
