Gordon Mitchell was born in 1952 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art. He embarked on a career in teaching until becoming a full-time painter in 1989.
A prolific painter, often labelled a surrealist (though he thinks not), he certainly wants his work to be thought-provoking. Inspiration can be a group of words or a topical news story, but visual puns are his most common starting points.
Mitchell is an elected Member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour (1997), the Royal Glasgow Institute (1998) and the Royal Scottish Academy (2005).
