You See Him Here | You See Him There | Mitchell’s Art is Everywhere

Australian street and stencil artist Damien Mitchell was born in the regional city of Wagga Wagga, in the Riverina region of New South Wales. According to All Those Shapes, Mitchell was also known as Darky, Franta and Frantisek in his earlier street art career. After working at Fitzy’s Paint Place in Wagga Wagga as a young teenager, 15 year old Mitchell cut stencils and painted some works around town. He then moved to Melbourne, Victoria in 2012 where most of his work was found north of the city (such as these early examples featured above).

At the age of 18, Mitchell moved to Prague in the Czech Republic. He lived there for eight years painting everything he could on the city’s bare concrete walls. It was here that Mitchell began to move towards large scale murals.

After having painted his way around five continents, Mitchell now lives in New York’s Brooklyn area, creating photo-realistic portrait murals of the places and people around him.
