TAMPA, FL – Red Door No. 5 art gallery, located in the renovated Tampa Heights Fire Station, is excited to present subtext: The Conceptual Pop Art of Mark Mitchell. The Opening Reception will take place Fri., Feb. 3 from 6-9pm. Mark Mitchell invites the viewer to look deeper, and take in his mind-expanding, slyly subversive conceptual and multimedia artwork. See beyond the surface of the everyday. Delve into a world of eye-popping color, iconic imagery, powerful themes, and compelling social commentary that challenges the mind while feeding the senses.
Mark Mitchell is a Conceptual Pop Painter and Multimedia Artist, seen during ART BASEL MIAMI, SEE|ME Exhibitions at THE LOUVRE and ARMORY ARTS WEEK NYC, GASPARILLA TAMPA and on FOX13-TV. An ex-NYC Advertising Creative Director now living and working in Tampa Bay, his art draws on the power of mass media and pop culture, while repurposing its icons, imagery and techniques to deliver a more personal artistic statement. Through the use of meaningful juxtaposition and social commentary, Mark’s work is an exploration of the irony, contradiction, parallels and harmony to be found in 21st-century life.
