Studio Visit / Preview Mike Mantis - Leviathan

Mike Mantis — Studio Visit

Hookedblog dropped by Mike Mantis' Clapton studio in East London recently to get a preview of his new work, which will be shown at the artist's upcoming solo show 'Leviathan' at the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs.

Following a short break, the show signals the return of artist / designer Mike Mantis to the art world, having previously hosted three successful solo art shows as one half of the infamous street-art duo Goldtooth. The exhibition will see the artist present a series of epic wall paintings, intricate cut-out paper stencils and a number of oil based canvas pieces some of which were at varies stages when we called to the studio to take this collection of images featured below.
