In this newest installment of our Art Focus, we introduce the work of British artist Mitch Griffiths. His style is inspired by Old Master paintings, but he cleverly subverts what he has learned to depict issues that affect modern society. The composition, light, and poses that draw their influence from his studies have now been intermingled with powerful imagery that relates to concerns of the 21st century.

For those interested in seeing his work in person, he is represented by the Halcyon Gallery in London where some of his paintings are currently part of their Summer Exhibition on view through September 1st.
