Words That Are Designed to Make Me Seem Talented and Popular!

Mitch O'Connell is the leader of the "Lowbrow" art movement. Inspired by Pin-ups, hot-rods, comics, sideshows and all things kitsch, cuddly and curvaceous, he takes the vintage and makes it contemporary with his distinctive eye-poping riveting pop art imagery. His work has been featured in magazines from Newsweek to Playboy, used in the world of rock 'n' roll with groups from The Ramones to Moby, utilized in advertising campaigns for major companies from McDonalds to Coca-Cola and his fine art paintings have been exhibited in sold-out gallery shows from New York to Berlin, Tokyo to Miami and Hollywood to Mexico City. His tattoo flash is a fixture on the walls of tattoo shops around the word with many of the designs collected in the Last Gasp book "Mitch O'Connell Tattoos" now in it's 5th printing. His newest book is "Mitch O'Connell the World's Best Artist by Mitch O'Connell." Likes include: letting it all hang out, doing his own thing, keeping it up and getting down.
Reviews for "World's Best Artist"

Skin & Ink Magazine- "It's the world where big-eyed kittens, nude beehived women, and rockabilly collide. This full color, almost 300 page tome is resplendent with an actual foam filled puffy cover encased in real sparkling glitter that collects all the good stuff from "The Prince of Pop Art"!"

Illustration Magazine- "I've been a fan of Mitch O'Connells zany, sexy, outrageous work for decades! Run, don't walk, to three bookstore and buy this book!"

Rebel Ink Magazine- "The King of Kitsch! This full-color 284 page collection is bound to be the ultimate Coup de Couer for any lover of Pop Art! Mitch O'Connell the World's Best Artist is a must-have for any art book collector!

Complex magazine- A great American artist. Unabashedly loud and bright. O'Connell proves that he knows what he's doing and that he's doing it well.

Hi- Fructose magazine- A brilliant American artist. His work is unabashedly loud, bright, festering with pop references and cult-kitsch lore, rendered perfectly with pie-eye abandon. A hilariously insightful read. Make no mistake, although fueled by a sugar packet color pallet and featuring brilliant craftsmanship accessible to anyone sporting a spare retina, O'Connell's gallery work is personal: fueled by his life, family, collections, and obsessions. And he provides us with the unabashed proof.

San Francisco Bay Guardian- "It's awesome! The book is a homage to an insane career of drawing and illustration, accomplished by a man who has managed to raise a family on his skills while steadfastly pushing the bounds of good taste. (A book) If you like insane, and talent, and professionally insane talent!

Huffington Post- "Pop surrealist and low-brow luminary... an over-the-top, kitschy, vibrant mood-elevating coffee table book!"

Boing Boing- "I'm a great admirer and stunned by how talented he is!"

Chicago Tribune- "Oozing charm of an exuberant kid who wants to show you all his toys. It's bright and brash, full of color- and the text that accompanies it matches the tone with it's cheerful bravado!"
