Nell Mitchell (b. 1998) is a multi-disciplinary artist based in East London, whose diary-like and confessional practice uses humour in which to convey very real emotions. Having graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2020, Nell aims to create work that is both relatable and deeply personal by viewing each individual piece of work as a window to the soul, with no holds barred. She finds that using light-heartedness in her paintings allows her to convey herself completely through a piece of work - Nell continues to build and grow alongside her practise, as something that above all else aims to brings the artist and its audience joy. Ultimately, Mitchell’s goal is to create simple and relatable work that speaks for itself (sometimes quite literally!), with the hope that it can provide comfort, solace, and laughter to a wide variety of people.
Recently, Nell has exhibited work in ‘Laugh-able’, an exhibition run by adam&eveDDB in collaboration with Fresh Takes and She Takes Over – designed to combat the idea that women are not funny. Nell has recently been selected to exhibit work in Liliya Gallery’s most recent open call, exhibited her work alongside fellow Glasgow School of Art graduates in ‘On The Other Side’ - an exhibition curated by Aeji Seo at Hoxton 253, in ‘Big Pleasures’ and ‘Small Pleasures’, two online auctions by All Mouth Gallery, and has had her work sold with online auction site AucArt. Mitchell is very excited about the upcoming exhibition with Studio West Gallery and focussing on her work taking an ‘all things food’ approach for the time being!
