Golden Heatwave, Barwon Heads is an original framed artwork by Mitchell English. The work is acrylic on canvas and float framed in a Tasmanian oak frame.
The gold paint Mitch uses here is luminous; sumptuously portraying those glorious, hot Australian summer days spent on the beach.
The brilliant gold of the work is perfectly accented with hues of khaki, pistachio, apricot and pink.
Mitchell is the master at conjuring nostalgic, retro vibes in his paintings.
Through his depictions of idealised, coastal imagery, he perfectly portrays the Australian signature laid-back lifestyle, and our yearning for space and freedom.
A passionate surfer now living in Noosa with his family, he says, "I made a decision after school to never live more than walking distance from the beach. I've stuck to that, and it's clear to see that it’s been a major influence on my work."
Mitch has been a Finalist in the Geelong Contemporary Art Prize, Fleurieu Biennale, Mosman Art Prize, Paddington Art Prize, Shirley Hannan National Portrait Prize and the Clayton Utz Art Award, among other prizes.
