About your instructor:
Drawn by the endless offerings of painting as a medium, Mitchell Villa’s process begins months before his brush makes the initial mark on his canvas, with each composition beginning in a singular idea. Rooted in the expression of figurative painting, Villa draws from a variety of art historical movements, including the Rococo and Baroque, to underpin both his aesthetic modalities and conceptual leanings. His paintings develop in a series of sketches, studies, and collages, and transition into painstakingly detailed photoshoots using live models and props whereby Villa articulates his specific vision for his larger-than-life paintings by hand-selecting each element of the composition. This methodology results in a familiar, yet surreal sensibility verging on the excessive.

Mitchell Villa is a self-taught artist residing on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
