Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Art.

I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two principal sites - my blog (where I talk about my work and pay tribute to artists who excite me) and my Yahoo! Group (where you can join my mailing list, read my stories and see my latest pictures).


There's also a link to a small gallery of my work here (last updated Aug 2016).
If you have problems with the link read this notice.


T
hank you for your interest and support.

Olympic Wrestling


The sight of one man bodily lift another using only his strength is one of the most thrilling of sporting moments. These two images show that Greco-Roman wrestling, not only has drama but also moments of unexpected grace and artistic beauty. The leotards help to capture the essential beauty of the human body without dimishing the masculinity of the wearer - at least they do as long as they fit well!
