About the artist:

Mitchell Lippencott is a central Ohio-based artist and landscape designer.

Although best know for his nostalgic advertising-themed sign work, the majority of Mitchell’s recent commissions have been custom furniture pieces. He co-developed the Columbus Before I Die Wall, performed metal work for the ‘Daily Chores’ public sculpture in Dublin, Ohio, and is currently constructing a large-scale public installation of his animated short film, Freddy the Fish Freaks Out. In the recent past, Mitchell worked as a Metal Sculpture and Welding Instructor, and apprenticed under tattoo master Horikei in Northern Japan.

Mitchell is a member of Cap City Creatives and the Ohio Art League.

A statement from the Artist:

“I travel. I garden. I paint. I build furniture. I’m on an endless hunt for the next big adventure, and I photograph the beauty I find along the way.

This collection represents my voyages, my vision of the world around me, and my passion for all things exciting and new. These photos are not memories – they are motivation to journey on.

I have no end in sight. Nothing I hope to find. I’m simply searching. I sincerely hope this collection allows viewers to embark on a journey of their own – to escape the debts and deadlines of everyday life. To find a holiday in the hallway.”

– Mitchell Lippencott

His exhibition will last through August 10th, and anyone interested in buying one of his pieces from this show should contact OAL at 614-299-8225 or oal@oal.org
