    Details

    Mr Mitty combines photomontage, collage, and fine art, to create a striking and distinctive aesthetic. Merging cultural references - from Hollywood stars and musicians, to members of the Muppets gang - Mr Mitty’s prints are a smart and playful take on the contemporary fascination with celebrity culture.

    ‘The Reincarnation of Socrates’ appropriates the eighteenth century portrait by Jacques-Louis David, which depicts the Greek philosopher in the last moments before his execution, giving his final lesson to his faithful disciples. But hang on, this looks more like a resurrection than a death…!

    With his eye for ironic humour, Mr Mitty reimagines the scene, shifting Socrates’ wise gesture to resemble a rousing call: taking his goblet in hand, the thinker beckons his followers to the strip club, which is in full swing in the background.

    Brilliantly conceived, and expertly executed, Mr Mitty’s ironic splicing of traditional and contemporary imagery is pure genius.
