With his poetic take on the rhythms, architecture, and sometimes uncanny synchronicities of the natural world, artist Mitchell Lonas is known for his exacting, exhilarating paintings, drawings, and incised panels. The Tennessee native, who studied art history at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, was for many years a respected portrait painter before transitioning to his current style.
Lonas, who now lives and maintains a studio practice in Asheville, North Carolina, personally developed many of the processes that imbue his work with its unique sense of materiality.
Mitchell Lonas’ work has been widely exhibited and is featured in notable private, public, institutional, and corporate collections, among them a series of large-scale commissions for Nordstrom department stores.
