S. V. Mitchell started his creative path as a tattoo artist, then moved on to painting and sculpting. Working at night, using shamanic rituals, magical invocations and drawing upon his extraordinary life experience he creates his art we see today.
He became famous for paintings created with his special spray technique - using an airbrush.He creates his paintings layer on top of layer, with hidden images in every layer. He says:''We can not touch our dreams, but we can feel and survive them. I do not touch my paintings by hand or brush, to create the true vision of the dream''.
