The Mondo Gallery Pop Up Modok Head Announces the new Mike Mitchell Marvel caricatures show.

When Marvel stars licensing its superhero stock to Mondo, the art poster division of the Austin based Alamo Draft House cinema chain, Marvelous things are created.   This time around Mondo assigned creation duties to portraitist Mike Mitchell and the result is an interesting look into the faces of Marvel superheroes and villains in the art show Mike Mitchell X Marvel X Mondo.

Mitchell gained some fame for his “Just Like Us: comic caricatures that mainly referenced the Universal Monsters universe. You can find them here.  A remnant of more than 12 Marvel-ous former creations made it into the Mondo show which opened on April 25th and runs through May 17th at the Mondo gallery in Austin, Texas.  The base of the show is an over 50 semi-serious portrait to the faces of Marvel. 

In his artist statement for the show Mitchell says, “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.”
