Mitch Mantle is an artist from Southern Utah who now lives and works in Arizona as a professor of studio art at Glendale Community College. Mantle received his Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Southern Virginia University and his Master’s of Fine Arts at the University of Arizona. His large-scale bold and vibrant paintings consist of dreamlike scenes depicting personal, familial and universal narratives. Mantle believes art is a powerful way to search for purpose and meaning – his pieces celebrate the certainties and ambiguities of personality, relationships and simply being.
